From the point of the graphite stick to it's side, this drawing utilizes a nice variety of marks. Here, the model was going through a battery of thirty-second poses. She leaned forward with her left arm over her head. Even though you don't see the arm, the gesture suggests it. The other marks, I believe, are from the previous pose that I drew on top of. Sometimes I don't bother changing the page. In rapidly changing drawing situations, I occasionally feel it takes too much time to finish my thought on one pose, rip the paper off the pad and set for the next pose when I am essentially racing with the model. I really like newsprint paper to draw on. It has a tooth that takes graphite and especially conte nicely and is a pleasant off-white. Unfortunately, it is unstable and deteriorates quickly as seen here by the yellowing around the edges.
