Emily was asked to pose for 15 minutes today. After a summer hiatus of drawing from the model, I could have used some quick poses to loosen me up. Instead I began with charcoal on A3, measuring with my eyes, drawing, redrawing, teaching myself to LOOK carefully, trying to identify what makes Emily 'Emily'.
I used pastel for the last three drawings, this was the final one. I drew over something else. It's 13 x 22 cm. My new fixative darkened it a bit.
