6th entry for Mar 11, 2012

These are a 15-minute study above, and a 20-minute one below. Both are done on 22 x 30" sheets of 90 lb. Maidstone paper, and both have had further reworking after. The top one has quite extensive post-session reworking. I was happy with the forms in A-   's back, but the texture of the shading, and the placement against a bare picture space weren't working for me.
... Which made it an ideal candidate for experimenting.
Both images have a graphite underlayer.  Both use primarily hard Nobel compressed charcoal, plus some black Nupastel for the darkest passages in the upper one.
