I’m pretty happy with my choice of mark making, charcoal on Newsprint, but I couldn’t miss another opportunity to go to one of the open access life drawing session. I felt that it didn’t go quite so well as before, but, the quality of line and feel of movement, shape and contour are still evident and this reaffirms my media choice.


A short 1 minutes pose


Standing Quick pose



This pose has my favourite type of charcoal mark made, angular, strong, but with a smudge of contour and shape.


My favourite pose, although a little weak in execution compared to others, it has a nice feel to the shapes and definition.

I know need to find some footage of the Great Bustard flying and transpose the technique.
