2nd entry for July 3, 2014

These are three 10-minute studies above, and a couple of 15-minute ones below. The line studies are all Pitt pen on 17 x 17" Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The lower two are water-soluble graphite pencil and Artgraf water-soluble graphite washes, on 17 x 17" sheets of Canson Montval watercolour paper.
I'm still wrapping my had around the square format when I do try it. Some situations, like sitting and foreshortened bodies work fine, but there's so much empty space with a standing or reclining figure, so i've cropped many of these studies down quite a bit. (Which is true of many of the ones done on 18 x 24" sheets as well.)
