6th Entry for May 15, 2011

 At top is a 15-minute study, done with charcoal on 18 x 24" Japanese paper.  I liked the challenge of the lighting on L-   's foreshortened face, though I don't feel I got a strong likeness.

Below are a couple more 15-minute studies, done on 18 x 24" cartridge paper with hard compressed charcoal.  On the upper one I took a further stab at having only a body portion, rather than the whole figure approach I usually use.  For the lower one, I went back to my more default position of drawing the full figure. The comparatively flat lighting made conveying the foreshortening challenging.
