FDW - Session 12









Session 12 went really good. I started using a new type of compressed charcoal. Using that along with the silky smooth paper pads from Dick Blick makes for some really nice gestural surfaces. Still had a few small head syndromes and maybe a couple long legs. She was a tall girl though. I'll get the specific charcoal and paper names and post them in the near future.

I feel my structural marks are becoming a lot more confident. Certain poses I lose some of that confidence with fore-shortening. I'm learning new ways to block out those shapes when they overlapping and complex in subtle transitions.

Practice, practice practice....
