I look forward to going to open studios. They are the stables of my art. They allow to practice techniques that I had learned.
With this particular 1 hour pose sketch, instead of starting with a gesture as I was taught, I started developing the head and slowly moving down to the feet. I noticed I was observing more, drawing what I see.
With an one hour pose, I found it easier to carefully draw.
The two, 5 and 10 minutes sketches can be seen on my Facebook page. Materials I used was mechanical pencils and white charcoal on Kona paper.
