A sort of online sketchbook
I'm guessing that the top nude is from Modigliani. And I can see Eleanor, but I don't recognise the others. The top nude is the strongest for me. The right breast and the left arm are so simple yet expressive. It looks like you've really caught what overlaps what, without too much farting about, and have managed to keep it simple. This would look great as a lino print, printing the black outlines in black. And maybe printing the negative space in a colour, leaving the figure as the paper colour.
Spot on about the Modigliani. The other nude is from a Munch, and the pregnant woman is from an old photograph I found in a book. I'm definitely improving my technique about using the black outlines. I'm learning how to use the lines to describe the solidity of the figure.
Yes, your lines are getting stronger & more descriptive. If you take your graphote sticks to Cropredy you can do loads of people studies on the field. I've added 'art bag' to my Cropredy list.
Damn, these are lovely. I like this new direction! Shan't see you at Cropredy, I'm afraid, but have fun!
