Life drawings from September 5

Yesterday I continued to go between ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil for the life drawing session in Danville. I started out with ballpoint pen for the short poses and for the first long pose and then went to pencil for the remaining two drawings. It’s interesting that even though my approach to drawing the figure (style?) doesn’t change, there is a decided difference in the end result between the two mediums. The ink is bolder but the pencil is somewhat more nuanced, a bit more subtle if less defined. I like experimenting with both.

Short 5 minute poses

Longer 20 – 25 minute poses
