These four are much more beautiful in person - Rachel (TL) who has also posed before, Kristina has drawn with us several times, (BL) Jocelyn, and Rose.

Some of the drawings were done on some cheap charcoal paper and also cheap drawing paper, both in either pencil or charcoal pencils. Both ways are interesting but have their drawbacks, pencil can't get dark enough for me but I love the smoothness, and the charcoal on cheap paper is tough to lay down exactly where you want it.
So now I'm back to Canson Mi-tientes with charcoal and a litle white, and hope to add some red soon for that Old Masters look! (ha).

Rachel has posed many times for the Murray Hill group and others, including at Ron Johnston's for me and the gang on Saturday for 3 weeks straight. Ron also did a beautiful painting of her during a separate modeling session.
This is the second time she posed for us at the Lit and is one of better drawings I've done, though I wish I could fix the top of her hair (too high!). She's at school in Arizona and in town for a week, we'll get to draw her again in the summer.
