On the Thursday I got out for a small amount of drawing at the TSA. K- was working that night, and these were all in the 10-minute and 15-minute range.
(not one of my stronger drawing night, through no fault of K- .)

These were 2-minute poses. I have a theory that the degree of focus in my life drawing is adversely affected by 3 principal factors- level of fatigue, poor health and absorption in non-figurative studio projects. The last of those is a willing shift of priorities, while the first two are more discomfiting. That week the drawing was all a bit `off', I felt, and I think it was due to a touch of some low-grade bug in my system.

I made it in for part of the morning session at the TSA, where A- was working. The lower two studies were 10 minutes, and I was still waking up. The other three were 15 minutes each, and the shading worked well on them. They have an early -mid 20th century feeling, both in pose and shading, for me.

I was back in drawing on Friday. D- was working that night. These are a 5-minute full-figure study below and three 10-minute studies above where I fussed over facial features with varying degrees of success.
I had taught a class focusing on hands the week before, and the hands were well -described in these studies.

These two 10-minute poses finished that evening. The lower one was the final pose, and I was starting to get tired at that point. Looking back, while there were a fair number of studies from that evening I was unsatisfied with, the ones that worked by and large worked better than usual.
