Wednesday's Expressive Drawing Class~Ms. M.

Ms. M. was today's model.  This was the first time I've come across her and I have to say that she's probably the best female model I've drawn.  I didn't notice even a mm of movement from her. 

This drawing is worked with an eraser and charcoal on  paper that has had a layer of charcoal applied to create a medium tone to the paper.  You then "draw" with your eraser, picking out the highlights on the model and darken the areas with the deeper tones with more charcoal.  This is one of my favourite ways to draw.  I worked both left and right handed.  This tends to get me into the "zone" more easily and  the drawings tend to come out better in the end.  Who knew I was a closet leftie!

lol! Yes, that would help. She's a bit young for danglies such as those.

I've never drawn a nude, life drawing I guess you call it, and one day I must put this on my half to do list which never gets done. Good job by the way.
