A Lady In Black (Female Nude)

25 Apr

25 tonya

Just got back from this evening’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. This model is great, full of character with a very complex face. I used a piece of discarded mountboard (matte) that I prepared with 2 coats of acrylic gesso. When it dried I sponged an ink wash randomly across the surface. This evening, I drew the figure directly with a traditional dip pen and Indian ink, then brushed on a mid-tone ink wash before picking out the highlights with a white oil pastel. Finally, I did a small amount of very fine pen linework with a Faber Castell Pitt pen, size S. It took one hour and it’s roughly size A4. Time for bed now……..
