3rd Entry for Nov. 28, 2011

From the top, these are a 15-minute, a 20-minute and another 15-minute study.
The top two are on 22 x 30" sheets of Maidstone paper, and the lower one is on 21 x 29" Strathmore paper from a roll.
The top one was done with Conte crayon. There are marks on the left-side buttock area and  mid-thigh on the right where grit in the Conte scratched up the soft surface of the paper. I was not impressed by that.
The middle one is the hard compressed Nobel chalk, which behaved much better.
The bottom one was a mix of hard and medium Nobel compressed charcoals. The more coarse 'tooth' of the Strathmore paper is evident, but it did afford a broad tonal range.
