Part 4 – Project 1 – Exercise 2 – emphasising form with cloth

draped figure

This was quite a challenge as the forms of the folds over the body have very subtle shading.  Some areas of the figure work better than others.   Perhaps if I had chosen to work in pencil there would have been a larger repertoire of marks open to me.   The red chalk needed much more careful handling than I am capable of at this stage.

However I am pleased that the figure does seem to be there, sitting and not floating.
