I’ve been doing some experimenting on this drawing rather than sticking with my normal process. I’m not sure if that is a good thing.

Lately I’ve been all over the place with my drawings and painting. I really think I should sit down one day and work out a process that I can follow each time I start a new drawing or painting.

I like the work that I did with todays session, but I really should have established the whole figure first.

I’m rubbing some of the charcoal dust from sanding my pencils into the background, I’m not sure if it looks interesting or messy.
