Drawing 19 – Ruth 10
Pencil and chalk.
Chalk is turning out to be my comfort zone, but I like warming up with it.

Went a bit wey-hey with this one… “Chalk meets Bond Girl” treatment. You might not see it it clearly in the picture but I added some extra build lines as a finishing touch, with crayolas. This is what happens when I borrow my kid’s pencil case.
Drawing 21 – Ruth 12
My favourite of the evening. I’d been tackling Art Nouveau hair prior to this 1000-drawing challenge — Mucha in particular — and this is the first time I’ve tried it in life drawing.
This was a 45-minute pose, which was spent mostly on the hair. I ran out of time obviously, but I quite like the unfinished look so I’ll leave it.
My next challenge will be to experiment with washes of colour as well as ink. That’s definitely the style I want to progress.
