Recent life drawings

Three life drawings from the last couple weeks.  The first has 5-minute poses of the energetic model drawn with compressed charcoal on mylar.  The translucent mylar show some 3-minute poses in pen and watercolour underneath.  The next is a 15-minute pose done in compressed charcoal on paper.  And the third is a 20-minute pose in compressed charcoal on mylar.  Twenty minutes is a bit short for a portrait; it doesn't look much like the model.  (Or maybe I should say "It doesn't look much like the model physically."  That makes it sound like I was trying to capture something deeper than mere physical likeness...)
