4th entry for June 19, 2012

These are 25-minute studies of S-   .  Each is done with hard compressed Nobel charcoal on 22 x 30" sheets of Maidstone rag paper that had been  prepared with an underlayer of gtay-green chalk mixed with powdered charcoal.

It can be challenging for more novice life drawers to work out foreshortened volumes of a body in space.
AS I mentioned below, I teach a special summer  3-day workshop at the Toronto School of Art July 23-25 called Structural Bodies that runs 6 hours daily, and focuses on the `perspectival/volumetric'  aspect of figure drawing - and the surrounding space too, at times.
To make the most of this class, you should have a basic grasp of drawing simple volumes (tubes, eggs and blocks) in at least rough perspective from imagination. 
There is room. and you can contact the school and get more information via their website here.
If you want any other information, drop me a line, and I'll be happy to fill you in.
