Conte pencil on 18" x 24" cartridge paper
This is a little classroom work from Monday night. We had a live model and started out with quick and simple line drawings capturing the gesture of movement while our model did 10- and 30-second poses. Gradually we increased the pose duration and worked on capturing mass while maintaining the gesture. Finally we did a couple of 20-minute poses and worked on combining the line and mass gesture renderings. In the seated rendering on the right, I smudged the drawing with my fingers to blend and smooth the conte.
