Working purely in graphite again. A good model at last, and in fact a lady I know from my swimming club. We did two, long drawings. The first was not all that great, but I quite liked this scribbled one, with some of the studio context. I used a 9B graphite stick which I bought in Brooklyn, which is lovely for fast sketches.
Just completed a one day workshop run by Mark Kelland on Drawing like Raphael. Not sure if I achieved that quite, but it was fun and this was the best of about 12 drawings. Good to spend a day just drawing.
Back at Mark Kelland’s life class. I shall miss a couple, but it is good to be working to a structure. Using just charcoal and chalk today. The model was keen to adopt dramatic poses. To be fair, he was very good at holding them. These are the two 20 minute poses. We did several other quick warm up sketches.
