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.

    Don’t rework. You will lose the freshness. This is very beautiful.

      Thank you. Sometimes it’s just a question of having enough confidence to leave things alone 🙂
