Charcoal Figure Drawings - Art

Another passion of mine is drawing the figure with charcoal pencils on smooth newsprint, which I've been doing regularly for many years at a Late PM Sketch Class given by The Art Students League of New York, where I am a Life Member. The M-F class meets from 5-6:30 p.m., is uninstructed and is free for members, a great incentive to attend the class as often as possible. I also drew for many years at Joe Catuccio's "Project for Living Artists" when it was located on Greene Street in Manhattan. While smooth newsprint is not archival, I've found it to be the most receptive paper for charcoal, a kneaded eraser and smudging with a finger. Making prints of these drawings on better-quality paper has long been a desire of mine, so I'm happy that Fine Art America affords me this opportunity. Most of these drawings are quick sketches of poses ranging from one to 25 minutes. I do no work on them after the pose is over, but I've edited some backgrounds for this FAA collection. I hope these sketches transmit just a tiny fraction of the enormous pleasure I experienced while creating them. Going down the home stretch on a 25-minute pose is about as exhilerating as anything I've ever done in my lifetime.
