This is a drawing I did of my son standing on the beach in Narragansette RI. Spent the last few weeks there visiting my daughter and grandson. (I was a child bride, ahem). Anyway, It was cold. Hence the warm clothing.
I used the "envelope method" of drawing for the first time. Apparently it's a classical method that's been around for a long while.
Anthony Ryder has written a beautiful book on this method, "The Artist's Complete Guide To Figure Drawing". His drawings as well as his paintings are exquisite!
