|Male Nude, 1974|
I wouldn't say the 2011 drawing is "better". It has sharper, more confident line work and the pose is more dynamic. But the older drawing has an atmosphere and sense of calm that make up for any technical shortcomings. Overall I would say the drawings are comparable. Not sure what this says about my progress or lack of progress drawing the figure over the last 39 years.
