5 July 18. Life drawing just in a sketchbook this time, starting with 3 x 15 minute poses:
Then a 40 minute pose:
In each case I began either on bought coloured paper stuck in my sketchbook or I coloured the white pages first with water and powder from a brown conte stick.
The last pose, although over twice the duration of the first three, is not really more effective, and I think a little over-worked in places.
I’m finding that I can now draw a line with more confidence, knowing that it is in the right place. I seem to be more accurate with visual measurement, relating one point or angle to another and using the negative spaces as an aid.
