3rd entry for May 7, 2012

A-  did a clothes switch, and these 25-minute studies ensued. The top three are on 24 x 36" sheets of Durotone extra white paper, using hard compressed Nobel charcoal.
The lowest one uses the same charcoal, but on a 22 x 30" sheet of Maidstone rag paper that was dusted with gray chalk powder.
None of these worked out perfectly - they have proportion and likeness problems here and there.  But there are things I'm happy with in each. Any of them could be the preliminary sketches for a more carefully worked-through drawing.
They were good costume and character practice.
