Entry for Dec 28, 2013 (Last entry for 2013)

(Here we are, a week into January and wrapping up the 2013 posts. There were 237 of them in total for the year, so roughly two posts for every 3 days or so. That's down from the nearly 500 posts for each of 2011 & 2012, but I also discovered that I could now include more than 5 images per post, which was not previously the case. This year passed also saw a number of big events in my life, for which figure drawing dropped off a bit from the previous year's involvement.)

On the Sunday, Nyda was back in town and came to work for the Sackville drawing session. The top three studies are 10 minutes each, done with Pitt calligraphy point pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The two below that are each 15 minutes using the same pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson XL Drawing paper (and the lower of the two sees a return of the oil-base pencil in the upper body shading..) The study second from bottom is water-soluble graphite on 18 x 24" 150 lb Maidstone paper.
The small 10-minute head study is the same paper/pen as the top three.
