Entry for Nov 21, 2013

 It was a costume-themed evening in Riverdale on the Thursday at the Collective drawing session at a house in Riverdale.  Courtney, a group member, was posing as a character originated by the host, in an outfit outfit that paired a traditional wimple with black lace, stockings and some nice shoes.
All the dark fabric and folds were challenging. These are drawn on 11 x 15" sheets of Canson drawing paper, using a Pitt calligraphy point felt pigment pen and  the longer ones were helped out with black pan pastel over the ink drawing, to establish darker local values over the lines.
From the top, these are a 15-minute study, two 5's, two 10's and another 15-minute one at bottom.
