Breaking the law
This is a 1 1/2 hour drawing from the same figure class/studio. Actually I broke from the group to work this piece, the model was to remain in another room while the students were to sketch her from memory. Frank wanted the students to "abstract" their drawings by blending multiple views and angles to the same drawing. I gave it a try but the light casting on the model was way to much of a draw for me, so I moved my easel into the same room and work on this drawing there.
The class did yield some interesting and well done pieces, however, I figure if I have a model to work from I should be able to "look" at the model while I'm drawing regardless of what style. Anyway, this is my attempt at an abstract figure, what do you think?
