Placing "B"

Placing “B”
This morning at a drop in life drawing session, I had another chance to draw “B”. I did some sketches of her a couple of weeks ago. For her longer poses (25 Min.) today, I sketched with ballpoint pen on toned grey paper. I also used a little bit of white ink.
For these types of sketches in the past I have used my reference drawings from previous life drawing sessions, or photo references, thinking I needed more time for all the crosshatching.
But I even had enough time in these two poses to place  “B”  in a favorite background,  on my Islands off Solitude.
12”x 9” toned grey paper with ballpoint pen and white gel pen.


  1. You've placed her beautifully in both poses and on the Islands of Solitudes, no less, it's going to be a good day

  2. She is perfect for the Islands of fact, I believe she sums them up!
    She positively exudes tranquillity, making the observer long to be there too...:)

    1. I think so too. She is a welcome addition.
      Thank you
