Back To The Drawing Board

I spent the weekend in a workshop called “Experimental Mark-Making In Figure Drawing.” Two days, six hours a day. Pretty exhausting. Teacher Mark Eanes was great. I regained my sense of joy in figure drawing.

Here is some of my work:

  • Using a searching, “groping” line to create a figure gesture that looks like a wire sculpture.
  • Combining conte crayon as a “tone” with charcoal pencil line.
  • Quick, small studies designed to explore the negative space more than the figure itself.
  • Paint used for drawing.
  • Some final charcoal drawings, using a variety of lines, marks and tones.

    1. You were already great with your figure drawing. There will be no living with you now! I especially love the “groping” line examples! What fun!!!
