Figure Study


This is a little 8' x 8' graphite and pastel study for an idea where the central theme was coastal rock formations. I like the idea of contrasting huge, unforgiving monoliths with the softer organic shapes of the human figure.

Rocks? What rocks? :)

It's beautiful, especially for a study. Being a study, I probably shouldn't quibble but for some reason the scene looks just a little bit overlayed to me; maybe it's the shelf-rock at the very bottom.


Kevin made the same observation I did. Rocks?
