Life Drawings July 21 2021

I decided to stay with using pencil and ballpoint pen for this week’s life drawing session. I prefer using color, especially with pastels, but I think using a stylus (pen or pencil) is more of a “drawing” discipline for me. I often depend on color to save a study with the pastels. Using a pen is much more revealing of the actual drawing (and any of it’s weaknesses)!
