Sketch of Woman Standing, by John EntrekinThis is my sketch for the day.

Late last night I took photos of a model/friend. I asked her to pose in this way for an idea I had of a large painting. The idea for the painting came yesterday and I haven't actually drawn that part yet.

This morning I drew this from one of the photos. It is as I often do, "cleaned up" from all the pencil lines I had there originally.

The model was wearing a necklace and  played with it all the time we were doing the photos. I decided to let it stay in the drawing because it seemed to make me remember and feel close to the experience last night. Not sure if it will make it to the painting.

I guess now I better get to the drawings for the painting.

I would be fun to have people send me or post sketches of drawings using this pose or sketch as a starting  point  to see what others might come up with as a full painting. Who knows!
