This week the model was willowy, so different from the solid man last week whose bulk naturally filled an A4 page. The page was mostly space. By the time we reached 20 minute poses my charcoal and conte pencils were blunt and I was trying fine lines with the edge of conte blocks. Mostly I could not wrap my brain round how to draw her. She had a lively curious face, holding a pose while her eyes darted across us. I wish I could have captured that.

I found an advertisement for a Meetup for weekly life drawing. 90 minutes, starting with 2 and extending to 20 minute poses. Taking my lead form Rosie Scribblah, I worked in black, sanguine and white conte crayon on toned paper.
