method for creating texture in life drawing

I recently went on a drop-in basis to a life drawing session with Look and Draw. We were using a method of frequently changing the orientation of the drawing before it could become much established, so that textural marks built up an interesting surface for the final drawing. We were also asked to work on two drawings concurrently. I could not complete even one drawing in the time available but found the approach promising.I am posting some details that give an idea of the effect.
