After much uhmming and awhing, decided to enter the image of the hunched seated model in the Hornsby Art Prize this year.
I considered this one – which is my preference but it just didn’t have it in the frame. Needs a background colour to push it out, I think?

Not the best either. Had to dig deep for inspiration on this one. This is a drawing that I re-visited, after creating the initial outline in pencil, I inked it and then overlaid the colours and tone with oil pastel before adding a final layer of ink wash and more outlining. The model was a little apathetic or maybe laconic.

Lately, have attempted to use line to model form. Finding it harder to than expected. It’s always easier to fall back to old habits and the safety of what you know.

More brush and ink with wash. A quick sketch.
