Black and white and grey all overPosted: April 27, 2015
I stopped at the art store today to buy some sheets of toned paper because I haven’t been able to obtain the results I want with watercolour in life drawing studio. I’ve been struggling with volume, depth and highlights. I don’t have a lot of practice with pastels but I bought some black and some white compressed conté sticks and this pad of paper that has different colour sheets of pastel paper. We did 30 minutes poses today and in each one I tried to focus on Christian’s face — in particular his deep set eyes which I have struggled with in the past. He is a tremendous model. I’m not sure you can see from my drawing but in the middle pose he is holding his arm up in the air, something he managed to do for the full half hour.
