3rd entry for Jan 19, 2015

These are four 10-minute studies above, and a 15-minute one at the bottom. The top three are Pitt pen and gray ink washes on Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The fourth is water-soluble graphite on a sheet of Canson Watercolour paper, and the bottom one is ink washes and Pitt pen on a sheet of Strathmore drawing paper.
All of these are on 18 x 18" sheets of paper.

It was my first time at the White House Project space. They are a couple of blocks south of College St. on Augusta, on a second floor. Their drawing session is 2 hours, most Monday nights, from 7 - 9 p.m. The emphasis is on short poses, and the space is quite spare in terms of furniture and props, and lighting is quite simple. They play a mix of indie and post-punk music, not too loud.  Personally,  I liked the bare-bones ambience of it.
