2nd Entry for Oct.16, 2011

In the afternoon, I worked on two studies of T-  . The upper one was approx. 2 hours, while the lower one was roughly 40 minutes. Both are using hard compressed charcoal on 18 x 24" sheets of cartridge paper.
I was experimenting with varying the `infill' of the paper's surface grain. In the opper one, T-  's figure was drawn directly, and the surrounding areas were blended down into the paper. The surfaces she sits on use direct shading over top of vayring intensities of blended local value. In the lower image, T-   's figure was drawn, the charcoal blended and erased to establish tonal areas, then overdrawn with direct shading. The background is just direct shading no blending.
