Good Friday

Managed to fit an extra session in. First some short poses. They were supposed to be 10 minutes each but the middle one (back view) stopped after 5 minutes which was an interesting experiment. Charcoal and charcoal pencil on A2.

30 minutes same materials

One hour, pencil on A2.

Just for the fun of it

Not sure about the results on Tuesday though it was an interesting exercise. We were doing wax resist though I used oil pastel with watercolour (plus some water soluble wax pastels).

First though some quick poses. About 2 minutes each. Left then right hand

Then just one minute. First left hand then not looking at the paper.

Now the resist. First 15 minutes on A2.

I added more wax for the longer pose. About 45 minutes on 30"x22"
