Painting with gouache
While at Coffee Tree Roasters on Walnut street, I was drawing with some friends.

In October, I only used ink. I enjoyed using a brush pen for drawing and calligraphy.
I really took a liking to life drawing and writing the Chinese characters in my Mandarin classes in the library.

Here are a variety of life drawings I have done over the past several weeks. I use mostly just a piece of black 2B charcoal. Sometimes I use white to highlight, but I prefer to just use the black charcoal. The poses are usually broken up into 1 minute, 2 minute, 5 minute, 10 minute and then end with 20 minutes.
