I don’t mention model’s name most of the time. However, as I look at these drawings, I realize that I recognize the models. So I’ll try to mention them from now on if that’s the case. I’m actually surprised, I recognize them as I never aim for likeness with these drawings. Rather, I try to capture the gesture of the pose and practice quick drawing, but some how likeness makes its way into the drawing.
In this drawing, I used mixed of charcoal and sanguine on Canson toned gray paper. I’m not sure I like the mix of these two materials, but it certainly looks different. Sometimes, with darker paper it’s hard to judge whether the material will be well visible, and I think it was the case here. I think the red was a little hard to read, so I added charcoal in the shadows to add contrast.
