back to charcoal

i am going to mix it up some more with different media. i am in an acrylic rut. i feel like i need to do some more drawing. so here is a charcoal piece i did last night. there are some pastel highlights.

two for one

at a recent session, we started with quick, 5-minute gesture drawings, and then a series of 30-minute poses. in this painting, one of the gesture drawings became the background - the shoulders and chest that you can see. on top of that i painted the model in her longer pose. i kind of like the outcome.
