4th Entry for May 9, 2011

These are two 15-minute studies of Z-   .
So far, much of my output drawing from life of late has been aiming to set down the person's whole body in the time available.  The potential of more consciously cropped compositions is not something I've explored, though it does hold interest.
I had the idea of `vignettes', centering on areas other than heads and faces, so I tried that out a bit on these two poses. Where and how to have the edges fade out was challenging.

These are done with hard compressed charcoal on sheets of 18 x 24" cartridge paper.
