Artist Friends, I discovered two missed short (60 second) poses of Wayne left over today. Now to be shared with you.

Technical Stuff: Lately I have been laying the charcoal stick on its side for my first pass at the figural form. The wide, soft mark sets up the gesture, but in a more corporal (fleshy) way that I like.

Then in the last few seconds I use the charcoal point to outline features that attract my eye. Something asymmetrical or unexpected–like the shape of a negative space between the arm and the body.

And so, that is how my life drawing has evolved into weird (and then weirder)!
