22”x 28” on drawing paper, from life drawing session
I don’t remember if the bottle was wonky shaped or I just drew it that way in a hurry. 😳

These are both good, but I like the composition and variety of shapes better in the latter. Also, the shadows and subtle values really are impressive. Amazing that this was on brown paper.

These are very nice, Patrick, as is your Rubber Man. I’ve never attempted figures from life with pastels and I’m sure that more than a bottle would look wonky! I think it’s perfect that way.

I actually like that the bottle is wonky because it gives the piece even more character, which the whole thing has a lot of. The nude is also very good and stylized. Well done on both pieces. :)

I like both and the wonky bottle doesn't bother me, I land on her expression first. ❤️❤️
