The drawing was fun, with a reasonably good model present. I decided at some point to listen to some Hendrix blues pieces on my headphones, and things went really well – maybe partly as a result. At the left is a sketch* that lasted a little over 20 minutes (was supposed to be 25 but, oddly, the model got confused about the time and decided to get up and hunt for her alarm clock.). [Update: See earlier posts, e.g., here, for more discussion of such figure drawing.]
I think it was my best effort of the evening. It’s rough and unfinished, but I like it. My approach seems to have been a lot affected by the kind of strokes I was doing a lot earlier in the day during some inking work with pens, on The Project.
