I'm sorry for the truly and terribly taken (TTT, for future reference) photos I'm about to force upon you.
Two fifteen to twenty minute poses from a few weeks ago. I am trying to love charcoal, I really am. I think part of it is finding a good quality paper. I loathe touching newsprint and, even worse, the sensation of blending charcoal into newsprint with my hands. It's GROSS, you guys, GROSS.
These were done on pastel paper. Not so bad, although it has a little more tooth than I am used to.
A different session. One minute to two minute poses. My final two long poses from this session were taken for a first Thursday show? At Vermillion? I think? Ha ha, who knows.
