Drawing II

Over the course of the semester we focused our drawings on the human figure.  For our final project, we had to produce a drawing that was inspired by British artist Jenny Saville.  It was a challenge, to say the least.  The first drawing is a few weeks into the project.  I liked the start, but it felt disjointed.  I ended up adding color prematurely, which really took away from it and since it was watercolor and pastel, there really was no coming back from it.  The night before it was due, I ended up starting all over.  I feel that the final drawing is much more coherent and resolved, though it still could use some work.
