Holly makes a return to ASOC Studio D for this week's portrait and figure work group.
Kicking off my photos today is from the last 40 minute session - I chose to go bold with a lot of black charcoal. It has a certain monumental design that I find pleasing. Holly said she liked this one too. Charcoal and white soft pastel on 220 gsm drawing paper, 50 by 70 cm.
Next - I really like this one minute preliminary sketch of Holly with her legs raised, on newsprint, 62 cm by 43 cm, together with a sketch from the rest of this 40 minute pose (Charcoal, watercolour pencil and white soft pastel on 220 gsm drawing paper, 70 by 50 cm).
From the first 40 minute session (Charcoal, conte crayon and white soft pastel on 220 gsm drawing paper, 50 by 70 cm).
Finally two sketches from the five minute poses, 43 cm by 62 cm on newsprint.
