The reverse can also happen. I often go through old drawings looking to toss images that no longer serve a purpose. On rare occasions, as with the image above, I find one that might make my current "so close" category. This seated nude was from eight years ago. Always the critic I think the front hand needs to be larger as it comes toward the viewer. But I can see I was working in the moment and the lines were sure and confident. Even though flawed this drawing possesses a certain power.
