2nd entry for May 2, 2014

For the second half of the Sketchy's evening, St. Stella switched to this Can-Can-themed ensemble. The  Parisian music was pumping on the sound system (which was almost too much of a gallop to stay focused with, but appropriate). There were a series of 3-minute poses (2 at top, done with Pitt pen on 18 x 24" Canson Recycled paper, as is the very bottom one) Then there were a series of 15-minute poses. The first and last of which have had post-pose additional working time. They are done on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson XL Bristol paper, using Pitt pen, some dilute ink in a Pentel brushpen, water-soluble graphite and graphite, in varyng mixes.
The bottom-most image was a warmup drawing of the stage pre-drawing time. Did I mention that this Wed morning at the TSA there is a Perspective basics class starting that I'm teaching and that you can enroll for here? Those chairs wont draw themselves...
