Mannequin - VI

Missed, charcoal on paper, 11.25 x 8.75 inches

I've been enjoying R. Chunn's blog lately, Alla Prima, with it's beautiful and soulful still lifes accompanied by artists' quotes. It's inspired me to comb through my own small collection of art books and copy down phrases that warrant savoring. Here's one I came across this morning:

"With the model before it, the background is transformed." - Robert Henri (1865 - 1929)
