Another Mannequin; Within the Limits

Within the Limits, oil on paper, 17.5 x 14 inches

" You have only one scale from black to white to work with, only one octave within the limits of which to compose your tone symphonies. There are no higher and lower octaves as in music to extend your effect. So be very sparing with your tone values when modelling the different parts." Harold Speed (1872 - 1957) in The Practice and Science of Drawing
