Art class with model, ink techniques

Homework from last week. The assignment was to draw 7 versions of a hand, using a different technique for each hand: stippling, cross hatching, tone, etc.

Today was our fourth, and last, class with a live model. Today we using ink. First we did quick gesture drawings using a brush dipped in ink, then a longer drawing using ink, water and a brush. Finally, we coated a 1/2 sheet of drawing paper with black india ink, and after it dried, used white chalk to draw the figure using highlights only.
