charcoal on paper, 18 X 24″

These one or two minute sketches seem to want to be large and gestural, and there’s no time to turn the page in between, so they just stack up on one sheet.  The young models like to do pretzel twists with the body – yoga time!  So it feels like enough to just get parts of them drawn and see how it all (doesn’t) fits together at the end.  Did I used to be able to twist up and balance like that?

In this sketch I think I tuned into the part of this young woman that is one tough cookie.  She’s pre-med in college.  That’s enough to qualify one as tough minded!
