Stefan - Conte on rough newsprint
life drawing by Greg Newbold
Last fall in the figure drawing class I taught, we frequently had a terrific model named Stefan. He claimed to not be an athlete but did admit to "working out some". He was so much fun to draw and was great to teach with since you could use him to identify practically every muscle in the body. I wish we had him this term, but I think he went home for the summer- too bad. This drawing was done in under an hour on rough newsprint. I was trying very hard to only put down marks and not do any erasures. It was a challenge, but I like the way the drawing turned out.
