1st entry for May 20, 2012

On the Sunday morning following a very solid week of teaching, I got in to draw for part of the Sunday session at the TSA. M-  was working. These are two 15-minute studies above, done with hard compressed charcoal on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
The bottom one is the same charcoal on a 22 x 30" shet of Maidstone rag paper, with a graphite underlayer on part of the sheet.
It was tricky trying to reconcile M-  's facial features with having the top of his head fading. It looks fairly disquieting, which I think is kind of interesting.
