Surrendering to my habits. Mike again.
Back in Massachusetts, trying to break my habits.
The final two-model pose. Worked up from ultra-simplified forms.
Spring Street again, transitioning from blocking figures to rendering. 20 minutes, charcoal pencil.
Working with two models, 10 minutes, charcoal pencil.
Back in New York. Working with two models is crazy. I had to work much faster than usual, to simplify. Here’s a series of quick drawings that demonstrate how I tried to solve the problem. Longer ones coming soon.
A break from New York: here’s an 80-minute graphite drawing of Ivy. 4H, 8B, and a little HB.
From the same session - more blocky, less organic.
