Life Drawing Aug 21st - Graphite

For the past year I've been using charcol on newsprint - tonight I decided I'd try a different paper, a bright white sketch paper.  Turns out the charcol  I had been using behaves completely different on this surface. So I tried using graphite instead. Yuck was my first reaction, every mark I made felt uncomfortable and embarrassing. I stuck with it and started getting used to it as I loosened up. I like this drawing. I plan on using these materials: graphic and the white sketch pad paper until I have a sense of accomplishment. Just an FYI
