Day 1: In The Curry House

1 Feb

01 28 days

I’m taking part in a Facebook daily drawing challenge for February and there are artists from across the planet posting work up. I try and do a daily drawing anyway but entering something like this will keep me motivated. Here’s a couple in the local curry house. It has some wild upholstery.

Not Enough Time

1 Feb

natie 1I had a really good run of drawings at Thursday night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I decided to use different drawing materials and papers during the evening to keep it fresh, otherwise I tend to slip into my comfort zone of Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens and small sketchbooks.

This is a piece of BFK Rives I had lying around, about 13 x 11 inches and I precoloured it with some blue System 3 acrylic mixed with screenprinting medium and applied with a squeegee directly onto the paper, with cardboard underneath which gives that striped texture. I worked with black and white conte crayon and black carbon. It was a 10 minute pose and I wish I’d had more time to work on that right foot – the foreshortening isn’t quite there. I might go back and rework it.
