Today’s drawing took me twice as long as usual to complete because half way through the drawing Cordelia moved into a totally different position and I had to start over from scratch. The angle that she settled into was a difficult one to depict. Her face and body were so foreshortened that the finished drawing looked almost like an abstracted version of her. I think it is difficult to know what you are looking at when you look at this drawing. As I was drawing it, I thought that maybe it wasn’t the best view point- but I was not about to move her, so I draw what I saw. I am not sure how I feel about this drawing, but I do find it interesting and it was a challenge to draw her from that perspective. I really need to sign up for a life drawing class so that I can sketch different people from life… I would really like to try out the skills that I have been practicing lately. I have drawn Cordelia so much lately that I can capture her likeness in minutes… I am curious how long it would take me to draw someone who I do not know…

    I think you did a great job with the prespective and angle!
