I usually return to life drawing to energize myself. There is nothing to compare with the human form and face for a brief look at humanity.
Thanks to the open studio zooms at the ARTS STUDENTS LEAGUE in New York City I have been able to keep up the practice in this age of Covid. This sketch was done on canvas paper with burnt sienna and turpentine.
