Day 6

Too late. I'm tired and was thinking about this all day. Finally I got a moment and "etched" out this contorted figure. I'll admit, even in full concentration, a pose like this is difficult. When I'm tired and feeling rushed or anxious to get the sketch out for the day, it's impossible. Yet, here it is inly slightly skewed. This sketch is also a good indicator of what happens when only one pencil type is used, in this case very hard; I literally "etched" in the dark lines. I know better. I think I'll switch back to the softer "lead" tomorrow.
