Pastel and Conte on Grey paper
Although this looks the same this is a tan paper which worked really well, I did some other quick poses on the same paper which I was pleased with but left it behind. It will be interesting so see what I think of them in a months time

The Tuesday night model was a wonderful muscular guy who could really hold the upright poses. He commented that we were kind letting him sit down for the long pose - but we always do as there is nothing worse than thinking your model is suffering. A great night!
Short poses, 5 - 7 mins
Long pose, about an hour
A2 Pastel on black paper
I am comfortable doing the day poses on lighter paper and the night poses on dark - that seems to be a good way of working right now.
