Figure drawing in Montpellier October 2016

More drawings from figure drawing session here in Montpellier. I'm trying to let go of bad drawing habits and relax enough during each pose to express something emotional, rather than just portraying the body in front of me.
My worst habit comes up during the longer poses. I sometimes aim to create a finished piece instead of letting go and just allowing something to happen. As a result, they tend to be over-worked and lack soul. The shorter poses tend to be much more interesting.

I think this one was 10 minutes. This is one of my favourites from the session as it conveys vulnerability.

Another 10 minute pose, I rather like this one. 

5 minute charcoal on paper.

2 minute charcoal. I like the strong line on her back. Makes the figure pop off the page a bit.
