Drawing

Female nude figure

Charcoal on large newsprint paper

February 2000

Dimensions: paper about 24 inches (about 60.5 cm) high by about 18 inches (45.5 cm) wide; image about 22-1/2 inches (about 55.5 cm) high by about 17-3/4 inches (about 45 cm) wide

Charcoal provides the depth of tone for the model's dark eyes and dark hair, contrasted with her porcelain skin, which is bright and radiant in the studio spotlight. This contrast creates an intense positive-negative energy throughout the work. I drew this while studying drawing in a short class hosted by the remarkable artist Anthony Bacon Venti.
