More Paintingy Drawingy Stuff

5 Oct

I carried on doing the paintingy drawingy thing today. I stapled a bit of gessoed canvas to the wall and started rubbing Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic pigments, thinned with screenprinting medium, onto it with my fingers wrapped in rags. The original is a life drawing I did earlier this year. It’s odd using paint. As a printmaker and scribbler I’m used to doing a process in one go. It’s weird for me to have to hang around to let paint dry before I carry on to add a bit more. I’m enjoying the technique, though, it’s free and expressionistic and quite fast.

I rubbed in a cherry pink at stage 4, white at stage 5 and then drew into it with willow charcoal in stage 6. Next step is to consolidate the drawing and develop the colours and details with Winsor & Newton oil bars. I was a bit more sensible today and went for a 5k walk after I did some work on this. Yesterday, I went out earlier and corpsed myself walking 7.5k and was too tired to work on the painting / drawing afterwards.
