Last night's figure drawings

I did these last night at Brooklyn Artist's Gym. We were lucky to have an excellent model, and an awesome session.

A detail of the piece above.

James S. T. Stranahan Sculpture Sketch

A quick sketch of the Stranahan memorial in Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn. It was sculpted by Frederick William MacMonnies, and was unveiled in Stranahan's presence on June 6th, 1891. Stranahan is credited as "chief founder of Prospect Park." My hat (if I wore one) would go off to him. More info here.
