more gouache experiments

These are from a few weeks ago. Covid intervened and I missed a life drawing session. Here I started in the 2 to 10 minute poses just using pen and switched to gouache for the three 20 minute poses. I painted onto toned paper, but blocked in a shape then added light and dark on top. I have a plan next time to make better use of that toned paper so I can be more sparing with paint, and also to paint more in flat blocks of tone and let these do the shaping rather than the brush strokes.

this was a fellow sketcher waiting for the session to start
