Loomis Lady 1
Here's another study I did from Drawing The Head And Hands - - the lady on page 80. The little "pre-liminary" drawing was done with an HB pencil and the larger study was done with an HB and 4B pencil. Most of the drawings from this book have a loose, grainy look, that probably was easily reproduced in the newspapers and magazines of the times. I enjoy trying to re-create his head studies because although they suggest a lot of detail, they still read as drawings.
