2nd entry for Sept 8, 2013

(Wanting to investigate some life drawing yourself? Beginning Nov 2,  you can take a 6-week Life-drawing basics course with me on Saturday afternoons at the TSA.)

The last two studies that day were 30 minutes and 45 minutes respectively. The top one is Pentel brushpen on 18 x 24" Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The lower one is water-soluble graphite on an 18 x 24" sheet of 150 lb. Maidstone paper.
There is overworking in each, but I continue to be interested in the pictorial possibilities the graphite has. A little more than 40 minutes continues to be the optimal time; long enough to not rush, but not long enough to over-render.
