Outcome – 3 Hour pose

Forgot to factor in breaks!  Considering I have not picked up a pencil since 15 December and this was a three hour pose it worked out better than I thought. wp-1485622480200.jpg I was disappointed that I was not able to achieve all my objectives - principally experimenting with other materials and papers.  This drawing would be great as a starter for a painting.  However - the sketching still needs work.  What I would benefit from is doing more exercise in tone.  I would also like to introduce ink wash into my drawing and working back into them with crayon, charcoal etc.  Some of the line work is too harsh. Anyway as a starter for ten for the beginning of 2017 I am pleased to be back on it again.
