Zhanna Pencil Study
I started this pencil study last night from my work with the model Zhanna. It has some problems where the right shoulder connects to the torso and the right hand as well. I think though if in subsequent versions I can work those issues out and maintain the expression on the face I may have a pretty nice finished piece to move to canvas. Its a crop of a larger drawing where the whole figure was visible. Will continue to work on that as well, but think for now the extraction is a good one. Back to the drawing board!!!

Found this older sketch today. It was done with a ink pen. Its a study I did for the Mexican Angel painting

This is from my work with the Russian model Zhanna. I used ink and a brush to create the piece. I’m very happy with the ‘energy’ in it and its deffintely direction I plan to pursue more in my work. I think it can be a little ‘tighter’ especially in the background, but overall I’m pretty pleased with it. It makes me eager to work in ink more.
