Feelin' Sketchy Saturday

pencil drawing
2 hours

I was in need of a lazy morning so I read my book and then decided to use a picture from the Art Models 6 book that I ordered a few weeks ago. This is what I ended up with after a couple of hours with the majority of that time spent on the face.

I like it Nicki. Very nicely drawn ; ) And I know this is a minor point but what are you reading? ; )

Nicki said...

Thanks Kim. It isn't quite right... I made a few improvements just before I posted it which made me feel okay about showing it.

I meant to mention what I was reading, but I was too lazy to go upstairs to remind myself of the name of the author!... but for you I will do it! I'll be right back...

... I'm reading "The Book of Negroes" by Lawrence Hill. It is very good. The first "book" was pretty graphic and disturbing- I almost had to stop, but I am glad I didn't now that I am far in to the second "book". The "books" are basically sections.
