2nd entry for Aug 28, 2015

Calibrating Expectations 2:
These are 1-minute and 2-minute studies. I usually want to try to set down the specifics of the person I'm drawing, but there's only so much that can be done in short time spans. For a minute and up I tend to shift from scribbly `pure' gestures into `rapid contour' line studies. There's no time to fret about proportions, so i just set things down and restate if necessary and there's still time. Two minutes and up gives time to pay a little bit of attention to faces and hair, but too much and the pose is over.
These are a medium-point Pitt pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
