A quick sketch on a newsprint paper done with charcoal. I was trying to get the model’s gesture and facial expression. I don’t remember exactly the duration of the pose but my best guess is that it was a four minutes pose. Fashion Night Events sometimes have seven minute long poses for simple costumes and four or two minute long poses for elaborate costumes. There aren’t really any hard and fast rules. Artists who use other media like watercolors get a lot more done in a short time – using large washes.
