back, female, nude, pencil

Originally from the South of England but now living in Melbourne, Australia. I took up graphite drawing at the ripe old age of 42, after a long hiatus of 25 years. I did achieve an O’level in art, whilst at school, and had hoped to go to art college. However, my family and I emigrated here to Australia and art college was forgotten about!! I didn’t pick up a pencil again until 3 years ago. Just wish I had picked up that pencil a long time ago!

    An absolutely gorgeous study of the female body. Really well done Karen. Detail of the muscles and even the roughness in the feet are what makes this a fantastic drawing.

  • Thank you so much Jim

    Incredibly beautiful! My eye is really drawn to the spots of detail – the bottom of her foot, her ear, the folds on her neck and side…and they contrast so well with the smoothness of her bottom and thigh.

  • Thank you so much

    I have been drawing all my life and have never imagined a pencil being used to produce a work of art like this … the flowing translucency is breathtaking!
