This drawing never got finished unfortunately. I didn’t date it, so I can’t remember when I did it, but last monthsometime.
The reason it didn’t get finished is that someone came round when I was only half an hour or so in, and onceI’d moved my hand I never got back to it. I can see what I was going for though, outline first, then majortone blocks. The next stage would have been modulating the shadows more.
This is the last drawing I did before I started working on theBargue drawings. I mention that because Ithink the Bargue drawings have had such a positive effect on the quality of my line. The next four hands show animprovement over this on in the quality of line and observation, I think that’s largely due to the practice withthe Bargue plates.
