An artist’s sketch gives insight into their thoughts and experience. In this ink on paper work, Khalil Ibrahim sketched a nude piece featuring two females in their organic form, drawn in two different angles. The late artist often brings focus mainly on the exquisiteness of the female body, often leaving the faces out of view. His rendition of the female body is thick, full-figured and stocky, with his subjects standing in various positions to highlight the differences from that of the male body, the disparities making them even more beautiful.
