38.1 × 30.48 cm | 15 × 12 in

Graphite, chalk, gouache on toned paper

  • Third Place ($500 Cash Award) / Drawing
  • Honorable Mention / Fully From Life

This drawing was completed fully from life over 4 sessions in 2019. I wanted to balance a structural figure drawing with a strong tonal composition. The shellacked surface allows for interesting painterly effects with the graphite, while white gouache heightened the specular reflection.
