Renaissance Head

21 Mar

21 Ben head

Just got back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. Filthy night, really cold, pouring rain and blowing a gale……and today’s the first day of Spring. Joke! Anyway, our model is great to draw, he has a very Renaissance head and excellent muscle and bone definition. I previously used up some offcuts of mount (matte) board and schlepped white acrylic gesso and grey ink wash over them to break the unrelenting surface. This one was a mid grey to start with. I worked onto the board with black and white conte crayons. It’s fairly small, a bit less than A4.
