Drawing Lesson

Boy Buddha
10" x 8"
Wheeled this three foot tall statue on a hand-cart into my Bootcamp class and had the students draw it.  It's a plastic resin reproduction I found in Target (always on the lookout for something to draw).  At least it held still... but the enlarged ear threw most artists, including myself, off.  The ear is used as a major landmark for drawing the portrait, almost everything is related to it.  The top of the ear lines up with the eyebrow and the bottom with the nose, etc.  Started this in class while lecturing but finished at home, after major readjustments.  Palette simply, red, yellow, blue, and white.  OM.
