Re: Weekend sketch

This study made me go back to your website and look over your work again. The thought occurred to me that you seem to have a contemporary neoclassical style... in the rendering, in the way you compose the head and lower extremities as well as the forms which you use to describe the hair. Never having noticed this correlation before, I was wanting to ask whether or not this had occurred to you as well or if in fact that type of sculpture had influenced you. The American Neoclassical movement especially comes to mind when I looked at the newer works on your site. Hiram Powers and those who would bring an American twist to the French version may be more what I am thinking of. Anyway, just wondering. Very nice study.
