This drawing is on newspaper print executed in a blood color crayon. The drawing background color is a poor representation of a 60lb. eggshell colored print paper.
This is a life class drawing, which is a flashback when i was 13 years old, going with my mentor to a class and seeing a nude body for the first time, I remember being the youngest in the class.
But this drawing is much later in my life after I stop urinating in bed. Can you imagine trying to learn anatomy, foreshortening, proportion drawing and can’t figure out how to stop wetting the bed? And terribly afraid to spend a night at any strange person or relative home.
