The Couple (Rock of Ages Variation #1)

Here is the first variation on the drawing I posted here. I used charcoal on Ingres paper. At first, I had difficulty getting started on a variation of another drawing. I am so used to copying, either from life or from master drawings, that I struggled with imaginative work. Once I got started, though, the drawing took on a life of its own, and I no longer referred to the original drawing, but rather let my instinct guide me.
