2nd entry for Dec 12, 2013

These are a couple of 10-minute studies, a couple of 15-minute ones and a roughly 25-minute one thet ended the evening. All are on 12 x 18" sheets of paper. The top five are on sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper and are done with the same Pitt pen as the previous post. The bottom one is water-soluble graphite on 150 lm Maidstone rag paper.
Jason's poses had a lot of stretching and foreshortening, which I find visually dramatic. It was extra-challenging with his height, on small paper and at close quarters. You can get an idea as to how close the quarters are by other drawer's feet in a few of the sketches. Nevertheless, there's something about drawing in architectural spaces other than intended public venues that gives a slightly different feel  to the process. This perhaps comes through in the studies.
