Last night at Joyce Jonte's figure drawing group, Alessandra held very dynamic and difficult poses. Wielding a graphite stick (think large soft pencil no wood) and traditional #2 pencil, I roughed out shapes and smudged graphite everywhere. Luckily I also had my Staedtler Mars Plastic eraser, a workhorse and the best eraser there is. It turned completely black. The first two drawings are twenty minute poses. The last four are one minute sketches.
