My inner thoughts while drawing the first day of advance drawing class at Glassell.

Thursday was the first day of my advanced mark making and gesture drawing class.   Considering the first day of class  jitters I decided to draw a figure I know well (less stressful). My goal was just stay loose, stay loose,  stay loose, draw instinctively, no plan, DON'T get stuck in details. Experiment with the materials - how many different looks can I achieve with a charcoal chunk, spray bottle and a push pin? Stay loose stay loose stay loose. Do not worry about details. 

FYI-I used the push pin to mark on the paper by slightly tearing the paper, similar to engraving.
