Paper supplies to bring to the session

Figure Study #70, originally uploaded by Double A Design.

For the last few weeks I've been taking note on what people are bringing to the session to draw on. Everything from a sketchbook to a computer.

We've had a few situations where I've noticed that the artist just didn't know what to expect and didn't bring enough paper to work on.

I want to go over a typical session for someone who is working in a dry medium such as charcoal, pencil or pastel.

The first half of the session is quick studies and gestures. You'll be going through quite a bit of paper here. depending on how large you draw or the size of the paper you're working on you should go through anywhere from 8-12 pieces of paper, newsprint or what have you.

The long pose should be 1 pieces but you may want to start over or move around half way through.

So stock up on the paper you need. If you want to leave a large pad of newsprint feel free. If you give me enough time I could always pick up a pad for all of you bike riders who come. We'll keep them safe and put your name on it.

See you on Tuesday or Thursday nights.

I recommend doing the quick draws on one piece of paper. Don't forget Thursday night drawing(630-9pm) starts January 7th!
