Tombow brush pen on hot press paper
Lulu had excellent posture which never sagged, only I couldn’t deal with the idea of a straight vertical line. I thought it unwise to tell the model to slouch, since this might not have been a problem for anyone else. So I rotated my paper to do the sketch, then added in some other sketchers when I still had time. The Tombow pen bleeds when you wet it, for quick and messy form shading.

The model turns as on a rotisserie to face different artists each time. Once again a ramrod straight pose. I could almost hear a parent saying “now don’t slouch dear”. So this time I turned the paper more than once and exaggerated the form (really hard for me to do for some reason). I loved mixing the Chinese white in with the watercolors to make them more chalky. Nowhere near a likeness, but that was not my goal.
