Figure Drawing

I'm a little embarrassed by my figure drawings, so maybe submitting them to 'public' scrutiny will motivate me to improve my skills. The last is a rare glimpse of a pirate who makes occasional appearances in our apartment (usually to warn the occupants to wash their dirty dishes). This time, he wanted to wish my roommate a happy birthday.

Just a few sketches

The freezing girl was in part inspired by the brutality of this winter and by the poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins that starts "See how spring opens with disabling cold" . . .
