Last Pose

I usually sketch on newsprint because I like the silky way it feels with charcoal, but newsprint is treated with utter disdain by some artists whose opinions I respect.

So I switched to white paper for the last half-dozen poses of the night. Most of the white-paper drawings were hideous, but on the last pose of the night I made two attempts (before and after the model's five minute break).  The second drawing at least made me rethink my plan to dump the whole white paper pad into the trash bin on the way out.
