Visible Thinking: Artistic Process

A Collection of Images

The drawing depicts a nude female figure sitting on a stool. Her torso is viewed from the front, with her legs pointing to the left; her arms resting, one on each leg. Her face looks off to the right revealing her hair, which is in a bun at the base of her neck. The drawing is done in heavy black line, and fainter grey lines of an alternate positioning of the figure can be seen around the head and shoulders. A wash of grey ink covers the top half of the figure.
