1st entry for Sept 7, 2013

(there's still time to join my Wednesday morning Portrait class, from 10 - 1 weekly at the TSA, Sept 25 - Dec 11. You can enroll and have a $40 discount here.)

On the Saturday morning Carmina was working at the Sackville drawing session (east end, in the Daniels Spectrum building) and I was continuing to experiment with some prepared papers. I had two variants on an `xyz axis' intersection, one thicker and one thinner. I was wondering if it might evoke a sort of stylized architectural space.
These are 10-minute studies, done on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper with a Pentel brushpen. Using the area of misted india ink as the drawing area within the paper is interesting, rather than letting it interact more randomly with a full figure. The shapes of the pose suited that on this one.
