The Human Body

Is the theme over at MMM, and is a much used theme in artwork. I have chosen to share one of my favourite life drawing images in charcoal on A1. I drew this while at university and find it a very hard thing to get right - if the proportions are wrong it shows, faces are difficult to draw accurately quickly and hands and feet are a nightmare!! For this piece we had to draw the figure without drawing a direct outline - not easy - so the whole image is made up of crosshatching. It is framed and hanging in my house, so was difficult to photograph. Hope you like it.
