2nd Entry for Apr 4, 2011

(People looking for life drawing instruction - or basic perspective instruction - should take note that I have an intermediate/advanced life drawing class on Wednesday evenings starting in a few days at the TSA, and a perspective basics class on Tuesday mornings. Both run for 10 weeks, and you can get more info through the TSA website. There is still space for any interested students, and all ages of adults are welcome - but act fast - the window of opportunity is drawing to a close...)

From the top, these are a 15-minute, a 20-minute and a 25-minute study.  All three are on sheets of Japanese paper. The top two were done with charcoal, and the bottom one with 8B graphite.  T
The graphite study is on a sheet of fairly tough, good-quality kozo paper that I thought might be a fair substitute for the `etchu heavy' paper I found and really liked (see March 13th).  It did handle nicely, but the dark shadows on M-  's lower shoulder and her hair were so close in value that I find her lower shoulder looks awkward.
Overall, though, it was a more succesful drawing outing than the previous two.
