All of the previous gesture drawings I posted were done with charcoal. But here’s a sanguine drawing! Most of the time, I use willow or vine charcoal for gesture drawing. Occasionally, I use sanguine such as Pipo’s chalk or Conte. It is a less forgiving material, but I do like the look and it allows to draw with eraser. I drew this quick gesture on Canson toned paper using sanguine. Some part of the drawing I like, but for the most part I view this as a practice piece and a learning experience.

A nude female figure is depicted in this drawing. She's sitting on a stool facing the viewer with her body and looking to the right with her head. The drawing is done in sanguine on tan toned paper. It is a quick and rather rough gesture drawing.
