some drawings

studies from yesterday in the studio. Not the greatest day, far too many scribbles and not enough hitting it right away. When I was drawing the hand on the thigh my thoughts went to a Bernini sculpture I saw at Villa Borghese in Rome, one in which Bernini managed to capture the pressure of the hand into the skin of a soft thigh, all the while in stone. I am always is awe of his work.
