Life Drawing

I love this technique of using graphite to draw with, then, with gesso painting over the top to create this soft blurred image. Our model varied her poses every 30 mins or so and the class was instructed to continue drawing after allowing a thin coat of diluted white gesso to dry after each drawing. The 4th and last drawing here brings our model Gina to the foreground.
