I had one of those "epiphany moments" in drawing class last night, where I just decided not to care so much. I know that on the surface that sounds kind of counter-productive, but in reality, it actually helped to free up my hand. Here's what I came up with , in no particular order. For the last drawing, I had started class by putting down some random marks & washes on paper, so I decided to use one of those to "pull" the figure out of. I used more washes on top, some masking tape, pencil and ink to try and "find" the figure.
