|Drawing 'blind' with a sharp stick onto carbon paper.|
|Drawing straight onto the plate using ink.|

The life drawings I produced are much looser than usual. Using something other than pen or pencil is quite an interesting exercise. Drawing with your arm instead of your wrist is another technique that I've never used. The drawings lack any sort of detail but the lines are quite fluid.
I got a lot out of the course. I've learned some new life drawing techniques and a new printing method. While the lithography produces a nice looking print it is a rather arduous process. It was enjoyable nonetheless.
