Going round in circles

Sometimes making life different is much the same
After last Saturday's session at my Croydon Life Drawing GroupI've realised something about the way I'm using my new marker pens - I've started to build up the drawings using short strokes, a method that parallels my old pastel technique where I used emphatic crosshatching. Just compare this drawing of Debi from Saturday with this one of Eli I made 10 years ago. The danger is that it all becomes too tight and mechanical - I'm not sure yet how I'll avoid that (or if I'll simply revert to using the pointed end and squiggly lines!)
