the art of not giving a f*ck while drawing

For each of three twenty-minute life drawing poses, I drew first in clean water so I could not see an image, then developed this by dragging a conte crayon (hard pastel) down the paper so the water caught the pigment to create a rough shape. I then drew into and around that shape.

In the second drawing, I also used opaque Inktense water soluble paint to draw in a sense of her tattoos.

I was trying to liberate my drawing over an obsession with accuracy. I succeeded at that at least

The warm up 2, 5 and 10 minute poses I focussed on just her feet using a soluble graphite pencil and water.
