Two models, a couple. But I didn’t draw them as a couple. Just not there yet. With the male model I spend 2 1/2 hours, time to develop the values. It was his first time modeling and unfortunately his back was not allowing him to sit very long. So I concentrated around the eyes and developed that area first and then slowly went to the nose and mouth area.
With the woman I spend less time, maybe about 45 minutes. I went straight to establishing the light and shadow patterns first, not so much block in, and then developed the eye and more or less the other feature.
With time constraints, I’m learning to concentrate only what is most important.
