Nude with Dog Collar

Another figure drawing from 1996 or there-abouts. I was drawing directly in ink using an old steel pen nib that I'd uncovered in an old trunk I'd inherited from my grandmother. The nibs were pretty inflexible, so a varied line was few and far between. Drawing directly in ink taught me to (try to) commit to a line, an exercise I highly recommend.


  1. Should I even ask about the dog collar?

    I really do need to draw straight with ink more; committing to a line is not my strong suite.

    1. Let's just say Diana had a very confident fashion sense.
