I felt a lot more confident this time around with using more traditional media. I found myself leaning much more towards charcoal pencils and graphite sticks over and above my usual choice of pencils. Even when I used pencil, I was using the softest I’ve ever gone (4B!) and really focused on making confident marks on the paper. I think at some point I may look to try working with an easel as some of the other artists do, and see how working standing helps/affects the ability to draw gestures. Anyhow, here are the sketches from today!
