female statue Jan G


Hi Matt,

Hope you are well.  Have not posted anything for over a month now as I’ve been busy sketching from life, something I have neglected over the years but felt was important to do.  However not working on a full length drawing for so long I am shocked how hard it was to render this piece.  I had such difficulty in controlling the touch and pressure of the pencil strokes that I never really got into it.  Such a shame as I loved the model and was really looking forward to getting started on it.  I also apologise for the quality of the digital download.  It was late at night and I had to have the lights on which has given it a washed out look – the original is much darker.  Hope I haven’t made your job twice as difficult for you.  Any thoughts you can give much appreciated.
