Seated Woman; Sleeping Woman; Face in Sanguine

Drawn from life within the last few weeks.

The first is charcoal and pastel over graphite on white paper, 18"x24".

The last two are Conte pencil and pastel on paper, 18"x24".


  1. Like the drawings a lot. Lots of drama here.

  2. Ciao,
    bellissime queste tre donne per la naturalezza e la profondità espressiva! Mi piacciono davvero molto,ma a dire la verità mi piacciono molto tutti i tuoi lavori che seguo da tempo.
    Ciao, ciao, Floriana

  3. Wonderful charcoals and conte (?) drawings Jean. Yes, lots of drama. I like the faint sketches in the background of the first and the second one is done, sign it and frame it. Beautiful.

  4. I'm wondering if you ever do drawings of people while out & about, say at a Cafe?

  5. the warm up sketches behind the first figure (and maybe in the drapery?) is a nice added feature. You must be happy to be able to get back to work

  6. Thanks for the kind words.

    Cafe, lately it's been all nudes, but I'm thinking about cafes and street scenes and lakesides, again. So, need to take my camera with me or a very portable sketchbook. Probably where one of those tablet thingies would work well (but I don't have one).

    PA, I love your changing identity pictures.

  7. strongly wonderful,
    especially the first.
