Wipe and Erase

This was a one hour long pose done in life drawing class. I used a technique we recently learned called wipe and erase, where you begin with a mid-tone (smeared conte) and repeatedly alternate between drawing and erasing until you have a nice balance. The left foot looks small to me here but I think it's the way the paper was rolled during the photo.

Done on a 24" x 36" sheet of newsprint.
