I see it's been quite a while since I've made a post on this blog .
Sometimes between every other out let I forget I even have this blog . But it's good for posting higher resolution images.
So Back to paper and pencils------
Okay maybe not for Professional work because working digitally is just too valuable in
terms of working with others on a project.
I'm just a part of a larger team when I work professionally.
And working digitally is so versatile .
But I need to get back to basics some times . Like a student . This is a "Long Pose".
Longer that 25 minutes.
A 3 hour pose actually .
Well you don't actually draw non stop for 3 hours . The poor Model has to hold very still for long enough . She needs a break now and then.
This is done with Prima pencil on Vellum.
The Prima pencil because it doesn't smear and is hard to erase so you don't spend too much time erasing. And the vellum is just nice with a smooth surface and fine tooth.

Drawing in graphite in one of my sketchbooks. When I was younger I used to fill up sketchbooks very fast. But now they last for years. Obviously because my time gets filled up with other things but also I realize that I have several sketchbooks going at the same time. They all have different types of paper and are all of different sizes. I have one small note book sized Moleskine , a larger 8X11 Molskine , another 8x11 book with really thick, hot pressed paper which is good for inking and several Aquabee books that has thick cold pressed paper in it plus a watercolor sketch book.
I need to go back and revisit some of those sketches and feed off of them for new drawings. I think that's a good use for sketchbooks . Originally I just used them for "practice" . Seems like I'm always practicing .
