18 overworked

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop (I took a Victoria Sandwich for tea break) and I concentrated on this one long pose. It’s on an A3 canvas sheet, prepared with scribbly oil bar in yellow ochre. I drew with carbon and white oil pastel. It was a nice pose but difficult with both hands and feet – lots of hard work. The right foot is way overworked; I just couldn’t get it right and kept going over it. I should have left it sketchy. Still, there’s enough in it to work from and it will probably be adapted and used in some future work.

    Why not come down and try the life drawing at The Broadway Drawing School in Cardiff? Feet and hands a speciality!

    I am 404, but I like your sketch. Would you haven’t said anything about the right foot, I would haven’t noticed it. 😉 But yourself is often very self-critical. I know that, too. Happy weekend! 😀

      Thanks – I’ve been pre-colouring a lot of my paper and canvas with yellow ochre
