Sophia on Brown Paper

Sophia: Graham Smith
I've been having a great time drawing on brown paper bags from the grocery store. The paper is "free" and turning them into little artworks, is my contribution to the recycling effort. To prepare the surface, I gesso the center roughly, leaving a bit of a border surrounding the page.

These are quick studies of the model Sophia, done in 20, 10, and 2 minutes each, drawn at the Life Drawing Workshop I teach at Sony. 

I use conté crayon, and or black and red colored pencils to capture the model's expressive poses quickly.
