Unfortunately, it was a typical life drawing session, beginning with half a dozen 1 minute poses, then onto 3 - 5 minute ones, a few 10 minute, and ending with two 20 minute poses. A format I do not enjoy, and I would not have gone if I had known. So many poses of such short duration do not work for me, and I now look for sessions with longer poses.
Because I had a few things to do downtown (like visit my favourite art store, Above Ground Art Supplies), I ended up walking home, trudging 4km loaded like an elephant. All in all, very exhausting.
Still, in the posts to follow, you will see that I am working very hard to turn these pages into viable paintings.
These were all done in charcoal on 18" x 24" 90lb archival paper.
(ps. The paper is bright white - I took the photos late and it was cloudy, not enough light for my iPhone camera.)
