Couple of Back Views

Couple of Back Views

Sketches from recent sessions with “J” and “R”.

Both: 12”x 18” ebony graphite, sanguine and chalk on craft paper


  1. I always find these back views really intriguing...without facial expressions to read, we can imagine almost any story to attach to them!
    In the first one, I see powerful determination...perhaps to reach a destination or a goal.
    In the second, there is a wistfulness...maybe a longing for something out of reach, or grieving for something lost.
    Gosh, your figures are always so amazing...I can see every muscle...every sinew...WOW!! :))

    1. I agree in the mystery expressed, sometimes rejection, I suppose. Fun to draw though..
      Thank you
