pen and graphite on hot press paper

There’s nothing more appealing to sketch than a model who is comfortable in her body.  A pair was modeling at the Thursday Nite drawing group and together they conjured the illusion of Greco Roman statuary – chiseled, timeless, monumental.

Maybe it’s the graphite, but there’s a stone sculptural feel to this one.  I’m using a little cake of graphite which activates with a wet brush so you can paint it on.
