Re: Life model drawing - short pose

Yep, you certainly caught the spirit of that pose .
I'm pleased to see you making good use of the Pilot parallel pen too, we don't see enough of that here ,what is it anyway other than a reed pen ?
I think it teaches us the value of drawing at speed , the value of mixing fine & broad marks & loosening up too.
Getting lost worshiping at the alter of fine line pens is a VERY easy trap to fall into at the expense of neglecting a whole load of different possibilities in the breadth of a pens broad expressive voice.
I would never have fallen into that trap !
