Post no.7* Portrait of Me (her name is Me)

*A very nice model who I worked with during summer school this year. This was the first portrait I had done in pencil for quite a long time. I find that long breaks in between projects in a particular medium help me to shake off some bad habits in favor of new habits based on better observation.

Post no.6* Aimé Jules Dalou - A Bronze Bust Of A Sleeping Baby


10x8.5 in.
pencil on paper

*I thought that this post was appropriate as I am visiting America at the moment, and have met a good friend's baby Gaius for the first time. I find that the most convincing aspect of the sculpture for me is that particular sleeping baby gesture.
