Completed works

Two completed works from my last trimester and a two day charcoal study that was finished today. :) The Brutus Cast is my final cast drawing on white paper. My next cast drawing (and final one before I move on to painting) will be on toned paper and include both charcoal and white chalk.

The figure drawing was completed over the final 5 weeks of our Spring trimester. It turned out OK, but I am not that pleased with it. I had a lot of frustration from the charcoal I was using (the final straw that made me decide to change to a different brand) and a lot of issues going on outside the studio. : /

I like the two day charcoal study that I completed today. Truthfully, it is almost a 1 day study as that the first day was so overcast that I was able to only place the outline of the figure. I will do another 2-4 day study next week. :)

Happy 4th of July! :)
