I sketched this model in Conte Crayon at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia on Sept. 14, 2014. It felt great to return to the studio setting after working impromptu with quick sketching for the last several months. This was done in less than 3 hours.
My self portrait and Raphael Soyer's self portrait. I have admired the work of Raphael Soyer since my first days as an art student in 1969. His advice to "go draw the people on the bridges" still inspires me today.
