Working top to bottom these were three 20 minute poses, two for ten minutes, one at five and two 2-minuters. I was working A4 on white paper and with crayon on toned hybrid A4-A3 recycled brown paper usually used for scrap-booking (not a great surface but all I could find on the day).
At the life drawing session, the model was once again Sophie who holds the most amazing positions and whose animated features still shine with humour as we draw. Previously I have worked in charcoal pencil and conte crayon. Today, I worked in pen and ink, grabbing the wash off the nib with a water brush. The first 2 minute poses were drawn free but subsequently I built a construction in pencil.
Sophie has beautiful tattoos. For the first time I tried to at least reference these in the longer drawings.
