1st entry for May 29, 2011

On the Sunday I came out for the longer 3-hour sitting.  M-    was working.  He hails from the U.S, and travels a lot doing art modelling work. I hadn't come across him before.  I was continuing to explore making `incomplete', fragmentary studies. Over the two and a bit hours I was there, I was able to get these four done.
They are all on sheets of 18 x 24" cartridge paper, done with hard compressed charcoal.

Keeping things in scale gets tricky in a different way when only drawing a portion of a body. Moreover, for me, trying to have a face be successfully incomplete is particularly challenging.
