Work in progress: Skeleton drawings

Skeleton drawings
Some life-size skeleton drawings I've been working on.

I’ve spent the last two weeks drawing two skeletons. One has a flexible spine, the other a rigid back.

The flexible skeleton has produced more interesting and naturalistic drawings, I can put more energy into the work.
The human skeleton is either a collection of objects (bones) or, in the form I am drawing it, a single object in its own right.

Drawing a skeleton like this allows me to approach a figurative subject in a way that should bypass superficial characteristics like skin colour and to some extent gender.
We all have a skeleton and most of us have a complete skeleton, so you can imagine yourself in the various poses I’ve drawn.
