*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.
*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.
