Finally was able to go back to the life drawing workshop this weekend. It turned out pretty well. After using graphite pencil for about a month I decided to go back to charcoal. I think for me to use graphite pencil it would be best to use at least a 2 hour sitting. That way I can really work the crosshatching at a better advantage. For shorter sittings like 20 minutes charcoal might be better for me.

Below are three 20 minute charcoal drawings done on tone paper.
