2nd entry for Nov 10, 2013

(If you've been enjoying images from this blog onscreen, then come visit my studio open house:
Sunday Nov 24, Noon - 6 PM and Monday Nov. 25 5 PM - 9:30 PM. 165 Bathurst, Ste 604
I'd be delighted to have people take a bunch home - and at very reasonable prices.)

- and, this is post number 2,000, for what it's worth -

At top is a 25-minute study with later additional shading added;  the shadows in it don't quite work for me. The second study is 1/2 hour, and I prefer it. The lower two are 25 and 20 minutes respectively.
The top two are on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson XL Drawing paper, done with a grey ink wash brushpen and Pentel brushpen. The lower two are water-soluble graphite applied with a waterbrush on 18 x 24" sheets of 150 lb Maidstone rag paper. The standing figure has some pencil shading as well.
