The first reminds me that perhaps I should not go into a drawing session not warmed up. It is like a form of decompression from the day in which the days pent-up pressure, restriction, constriction, and tight focus slowly comes unwound.
But to be warmed up for the first drawing is to be ready to maximize the use of the model and the time given. Then, intent is more focused and fewer lines are wasted.

Over a session, straight, clean but lethargic lines and a desire to capture some edge or shape seem become over-thought or misdirected. Then like the day's compromises, they are thrown off. What is disconnected becomes then recombined, whole simple and centered.
This is parallel to the disrobing of the figure which also bears little pretense but is what it is much more plainly.
