I really like how these 20 minute poses turned out.  I usually place only one pose per page, but decided to try a different approach, placing three on one page.  I used a white conte to capture some of the highlights for the hair, but for all other areas, just left it the white of the page.  I find that a more personal challenge than erasing or adding white afterwards.

These two were done on the same night.  The one on the right being the sustained pose.  I really like how her head turned out.

Done at my local art college.

A new year brings renewed creative spirits.   This 5 minute pose was made with large sweeping motions with the conte stick.  I enjoyed mixing up my lines, trying out different techniques with the circular shapes in an effort to capture the entire form.
