The Extremes in Figure Drawing

I am back to figure drawing and my last two models represent the extremes in body type.

Rebecca, a model at Battery Park outdoor drawing, is extremely thin and has very long arms and legs.  Tangerine, the model at Society of Illustrators, is massively obese.  I've drawn both of them before, but rarely so close together.

There are two 5 minute poses and a 20 minute pose of Rebecca and a 10 and 20 minute pose of Tangerine.  I sketched them with a General Sketch and Wash pencil and shading was done with my waterbrush and clear water.

Great work Shirley!
And I love the use of the soluble pencil washes. :-)

I like the look of the Sketch and Wash pencil. The values are subtle and very well done.

I love to sketch larger people, far more interesting!
