Models are like buses

We weren't sure we'd have a model tonight but in the event we actually had two turn up so one was turned away. First some quick (2 minutes or less) coloured pencil on A2.

40 minutes in Charcoal and charcoal pencil on A2 (a little elongated).

Finally 30 minutes in graphite on A2.

We were doing wipeouts with charcoal on Tuesday (which coincidentally I used last week too). First some quick sketchs. Three minutes each, charcoal pencil on A2.

Then the wipeouts. First one 10 minutes, the second 50. Charcoal and charcoal pencil on A2.

Sticks and shapes

Quick poses A2, wax pastel with 4 foot canes. About 2 or 3 minutes each. Poor photos due to use of newsprint (quite dark paper so I've increased the contrast).

Longer poses the focus was supposed to be on negative shapes though I just concentrated on shapes. 10, 20 then 30 minutes. First in felt pen, others in charcoal and charcoal pencil.
