Strathmore bristol 22" x 18", 300 gsm. 1 hour.

my last session with margaret before jan and i leave on vacation. she came wearing glasses, her hair loosely clasped, put on a few raucous albums, and complained about the stupidity of her psychology 1A professor. we were off.

at the end of the session i asked her to do some standing poses, basically figure portraits. i spend a lot of time on the clothing and the way it hung. i sketched the head and face lightly, planning to copy in from a life drawing of her turned face (see next post), but didn't bother to do it.

most of the time was spent hatching in the black levis, trying different weights and carbon densities.
