Joseph : Yeah totally, being in the scene allows you so many more experiences that can inform the drawing or painting due to the slightly changing nature of reality and probably the biggest which is the way our eyes work that aren't anything like the way a camera captures a scene.
But yeah it is not easy to simplify all that information well, definitely takes practice.
Only having limited time for exercises does come with some benefits. One tends to get quicker and simplify more, focus on the basics and do more with less, but yeah I do need to work on longer things.

Doing a 3 hour head rendering class with charcoals.
This is yesterday's effort. I think I prefer vine and compressed charcoal for overall aesthetic and feel, this one is mainly with wolf carbon pencil and compressed sticks.
