Tuesday night life class

One long pose again, but this time I moved around to get two views. Other people are surprised by how fast I draw. I in turn am always surprised by how slow most others are. I would get bored. It  doesn’t take that long to cover a sheet of paper with marks, which is all that is really happening. The tricky bit is getting the right marks in the right place. Extra time doesn’t help.

This was the first. Outlined in light pencil and then gone over with charcoal, with a lot of rubbing and rubbing out. Just a little colour here and there. Generally I’m pleased but I am not that keen on smooth finishes, which rubbed charcoal tends to give.

The second sketch, from behind, was sketched in lightly with blue pencil Then I went over it with a Pentel brush pen. I have never used one before so I am not too displeased with the first go. A long way from Matisse or Rembrandt, but one can dream.
