recent sketches

This is a sketch of Heinrich Hoffman's painting, Jesus at Thirty-three. It was done almost entirely with the side of an HB sketching pencil held overhand (as opposed to underhand, the way you hold a writing utensil.) The result is a softer, more painterly look that I really like.

I'm still sketching my way through Drawing People by Barbara Bradley. Here are a couple of ladies in their underwear.

I desperately need practice in facial experssions and proportions so, when I come across one of the many floating heads in the book, I usually sketch it.
