portrait studies



It’s a slow but enriching process to go through rolls of one’s old drawings, long ignored, poorly stored and in need of photo documentation. I am finding many from 1982 and 1983, years in which I attended some excellent life-drawing classes as an audit student at a local college – just because I missed and craved it but didn’t need the credit. Above are some ‘head studies’ as they were called. Below are smaller studies in pencil with a note on each: ‘perspective head study’. Can you see the faint diagonal lines on the first one below?
