The Hundred Day Project Day 23: Figure Reclining On Her Left Side

This time here’s a drawing done with a brush using black ink and wash. This was worked up after a life class from a very scrawly 30 minute session – so much ink on the original it looked almost as if the ink had been spilt and mopped up again. The main challenge, at which I didn’t really succeed, was to get the placing of the model’s left leg and foot satisfactory.  Ink wash always looks slightly convincing at first glance because of the impression of light and shadow it creates; however this doesn’t always model the actual form and on close examination it’s a bit disappointing!
