Drawing with a live model

Drawing class this morning with a live model. Working with gesture drawings.

We started with simple interior lines, no outlines allowed.
We moved onto a mass gesture drawing, using the side of a charcoal stick, looking for weight in the figure.
Horizontal cross contour lines.
Cross contour lines and limited shading by smudging the charcoal lines.
