2 hour head study from POP UP Friday

A recent charcoal head study I did using only massing to begin with and trying to avoid any initial outlining--only masses of general tonal shapes next to each other.  I added some contour lines at the end.

20 minute sketch from Figure Drawing

On Tuesdays from 6:30 pm - 9 pm, I hold an open figure drawing session at my studio and we work on short poses with a live model.  It's great practice and I always enjoy working in different mediums and trying different things.
