Shapes, sizes and Age

One of the attractions of life drawing is the variation of models that offer to pose for the group, all sizes, shapes and age make for a new venue on a regular basis. This model was exceptionally tall and slender and another opportunity to portray the human figure. The first 2 are the same pose just different media and technique.
