Entry for May 9, 2014

On the Friday I got back out to the Arts and Letters club for the 1:30 to 3:30 afternoon stretch of a long pose. Su was working that day (it was the lasy day of a multi-Friday pose). This is a 1.75 hour study, done with watercolour pencil and washes of water-soluble graphite on an 18 x 24" sheet of 150 lb Legion rag paper.
I was happy with the balance of spontaneity and control the wash/pencil combination afforded. The drawing has detail, and a good range of values, but fresher and faster than all in pencil.
