This is a drawing after Charles Bargue‘ s Drawing Course Plate I. 44. using the sight-size method practised in French ateliers in the XIX. century. Today this technique has a renaissance in the United States of America.  It took me approximately four 3 hour sessions and additional minor corrections to complete the drawing using Nitram HB charcoal on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper.
