Drawing Andi

Andi Simpkin, 2018, red and brown conte, black charcoal pencil, white pastel on fawn paper, 

Andi sat for about three hours for this drawing. I wanted to include hands but not resting on the lap. Sometimes the most interesting hand positions are hard to hold for extendedperiods of time, so for this pose Andi rested her elbow on the side of the chair. It was done in the sunroom, so the light was diffuse and bright, a bit different to what I usually do, but sometimes it's a challenge to try something you haven't done before.
