Impressionistic nude charcoal drawing

Sleeping girl (1990)

A study of a sleeping girl. My girl back then in my student days to be precise. I cannot mention her name here for privacy reasons but she will know it was here, even though at the very moment of drawing she was asleep indeed. Back then I never dreamt I would become a professional artist. Still struggling as a law student my mind secretly was set on art all the time. It took only the last years of my study to temporarily forget that artistic dream, only to pop up again at the dawn of the new millenium.
