Figure Drawing in Contrasting Techniques.

Even before the sale of the notable Nu Couche, I had been experimenting with figure drawing again but in a more minimalistic way...carefully plotting the line placement so that each mark represents a key figural element.  This style requires intense visual study to breakdown the form instead of build it up.  It is the reverse of how my mind usually works but I love the challenge.  I have even alternated between detailed pencil or charcoal drawings and minimalist pen & ink to help work "my eye."
