2nd entry for Sept 3, 2012

These are some 2-minute studies, done with hard compressed charcoal on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.

There won't be any aerial equipment involved, but if you want to get a portrait sketch done at the Toronto School of Art on Nuit Blanche (Sept 29) take note: you can come in for 20 minutes, get your portrait sketched by a group of people, and you'll get to take home your favourite sketch. You can contact thomasdraws@yahoo.ca to arrange the time you're coming. Please pass the word along - we still have some spaces available from 7 PM through to 7 AM.

We're also still looking for a few more sketchers who can come in late in the night - either from 1 AM to 4 AM, or from 4AM to 7AM. It's really good portrait practice, to draw a succession of different people over 3 hours. The person whose sketch gets chosen by a sitter gets a small prize in return - a little bit of cash, some drawing session vouchers, or some other small gift. If you want to take part, contact me at the thomasdraws yahoo address above.
