Graphite and white chalk figure study on smooth newsprint. Reference from The Croquis Cafe.
This sketch was done over multiple sittings. It was a five minute gesture drawing that I refined. I like the pose and the way the light fell on the form. My artistic instincts took over and I wanted to tighten the contour and pushed the rendering of the light and shade as far as possible, given the limited time I had. Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out, however, it is missing something. I can’t put my finger on it though.
Well, onto the next one.
