One-minute life sketch II

Here's another one:

Same dimensions etc. as the one below. There are some interesting lines & suggested volumes in there. I was always fond of the way Matisse or Picasso, say, would do something that looked like it obviously only took seconds or minutes to execute (probably), but would contain the soul of the figure or object (do objects have souls? maybe they do) or whatever -- a piece that would be basically a throwaway, but what a throwaway. That's what I aspire to with this sort of thing. Not sure where I am on the scale of things. My philosophy is to aim high, so if you miss you're still doing quite well. Or look like an ass. Either way.
