Sketchbook Studies

A few pages from my sketchbook-- all of these are on toned paper, with pencil and white pastel: feet_blog

A study of the feet from the statue 'Ugolino and His Sons' by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux.

malebackblog

Male back from a figure drawing class last year. I love the way light and shadow work across the human form.

wolves

Studies of wolves for a commissioned painting. Having no live wolves nearby for observation, I found a documentary and paused the footage from time to time to sketch the wolves.
