Figure drawings

10x12 charcoal on toned paper 
19x25 charcoal on toned paper 
11x14 graphite
19x25 charcoal

So my 5 year old son says to me the other day: "Mom, you're really good at drawing naked people" Here are a couple figure drawings I've been working on. The top three are drawings from life that I did in school, the fourth is actually a drawing from a sculpture. I spent several hours at the Art Institute drawing one of the sculptures. The second is a drawing done from life a few years ago. Lately my opportunities to work from life have been pretty much non existent. The last one is a master copy.
