Weekend sketching: distaff

Lamia, after Waterhouse (Mason, March 13, 2011)Purple (Mason, March 13, 2011)

Two quick sketches I’m quite happy with. Femininity has been tricky for me to capture at times — many of my earlier drawings of women made the subjects look a little too mannish — but these turned out well, if only because I’m gradually learning the discipline not to draw too many lines. The one on the left is after a sketch by JW Waterhouse (a study for “Lamia”), and the one on the right… is not.
