Portraiture class, week 7

This week was about setting up the pose for the next weeks, till the end of the course. We had a chance to draw either or both models quickly in several poses - heads only or bodies also - then conferred on where they should sit and how they should be lit.

I seem to fall back on the charcoal technique of making the background grey, then adding darks and subtracting lights -
adding the darks
taking away the lights
too much forehead... but mostly the angle of the head is wrong
a pose for three further weeks
