I did these the other night at the figure drawing sessions I run out of the Oxford Community Arts Center.
This was my first drawing of the night, I decided to start with a tone and light study with vine charcoal and white conte on a pink paper. This drawing was a quick 20 minute sketch.
This was another 20 minute sketch of the model with charcoal and white conte on pink paper.
This was the final drawing we did, 30 minutes, H pencil on white paper.
