A Slow Head

13 Jan


After drawing a Quick Nude (10 minutes) at last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop, I settled down to do a portrait drawing for the remaining 50 minutes.

I started with roughly blocking in some highlights with white conté crayon onto a piece of brown wrapping paper (about A2 size) then added some sanguine brown tones and then began to work in some black line detail. These first three stages established the basic dimensions of the drawing and from then on it was just a matter of building detail. This is a great model, she’s very experienced and professional and can hold poses and expressions so well. A joy for an artist to work with.



I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
