Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Nothin' but fives...

A day filled with five-minute quicksketches - and a pretty good day for me, even though I started out a bit slow. Charcoal pencil on newsprint, here they are:









The poses did get a bit longer as the as the clock ran down, don't know by how much, but especially that last one was probably more like a ten. More next week, I hope... Crossposted to Drawing & Sketching. Thanks for looking!

Wow, These are great. I'm liking how you are defining a nice long stretch of the figure with a single line. Looks like a productive session.

A very fruiitful day. A few of these could be developed into more major works. These are great examples to us all.

Enjoyed perusing your work so much- your pencil must have been flying to have captured so much in such a short time!

So inspiring. Love the construction lines, an education in itself!

Loren, that's exactly what we're working on at this point in the quarter, the big gestural lines. Thanks!

Trevor, so true about the hard work - it's like doing calisthenics!

Bethany, I actually try to go as slowly as possible with these, otherwise I'm way too sloppy. Several of my teachers have called this practice "slowsketch" instead of quicksketch.

Descartes, DG, Wanda, all - thanks much everybody for the comments, very kind.

Yep; seeing the construction lines for these beauties helps those of us that are closer to the beginning of the journey. Great stuff.
