Three Figures Dancing - original charcoal drawing of nudes

Here's a quickly drawn group of nudes with lots of restating.  I'm a big fan of that and when I teach figure drawing classes, I have students put away their erasers.  Kind of messy, but I find it instructive, although I do make a few passes with a kneaded eraser.  This is drawn with vine charcoal on Strathmore 400 Drawing paper, 11 x 14".  Thanks for stopping by!

These are beautiful charcoal drawings, Connie! I love the looseness of them...putting erasers away is such a great idea..I should take that advice!! LOL. Sounds like a wonderful class.

I like all three. Must have been quick sketch or she had fantastic balance.
