Week 1: Live Model Figure Sketch of Woman Standing

This piece began with Sketch #1 of the 15 minute poses from the first live model figure drawing lab. When I stopped, all I had was a line drawing. 

original 30-minute Sketch #1 of Live Model,
mixed media of charcoal, Pigma Micron ink pen, Conte pastel pencil, watercolor pencil,
on Bristol Plate 2-ply paper, 12x9 inches
At home, I more than doubled the time and shaded the charcoal drawing, added linework with a Pigma Micron 3 pen, a little color with watercolor pencils over charcoal shading. What we have here is a mixed media drawing. I like that I could save the loose, casual feel of the drawing.

This model was relaxed and easily changed from one pose to the next.
