This is a small (6"X8") chalk pastel sketch from about ten years ago. After completing the drawing (working out the highlights, shadows, and pushing the color around to a satisfying and realistic form) I found the drawing itself lost some of that freshness of the original sketch. By reintroducing the loose contour lines the drawing regained some of its original life. My paintings still reflect this understanding and preference.
