leaningin Leaning In by Carol Lois Haywood: charcoal and “white” charcoal pencil, on 21X25″ gray-tone drawing paper.

From a series of large portrait drawings, based on a season’s worth of life-drawing posing, maybe 3 years ago. I have drawn Anya several times–then and since. She is always an intriguing subject for me.

The monochrome color suggested the series name of “Silver & Smoke” to me!
