Southpaw - original charcoal figurative drawing

Boxing isn't dancing, I realize, but boxers are movers and that's what attracts me with my charcoal sticks.  The drawing is on Strathmore drawing paper, 14 x 17".
Totally not related to my blog - but I'm going to say it anyway - is that I saw Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder on Sunday night.  Wonderful!   They're such fabulous musicians and I loved every minute of their performance.  See them if you can!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Hi Connie
I love doing sports sketches because of movement. Have a look at my other blog and you'll see what I mean.
