I try to get along to life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop as often as I can, to get in the practice. It’s not always easy, it’s quite late in the evening and sometimes I’m so tired it’s hard to focus. This was one of those weeks. I did a couple of quick sketches to warm up but I didn’t think I was getting anywhere so I did a study of our model’s hand and then a longer study of her face. I used willow charcoal and white conte crayon into an A2 size brown paper sketchbook.
