I went out plein air-ing with some women I know this morning. We had a lovely time with excellent weather. Genuinely a magical day.
I brought my drawing materials. This is what I got.
In class, we’ve been working with closed grisaille. This is my second piece using that technique that I’ve done for practice at home.
This is my summary of the steps.
Step 1. Draw in white chalk
Step 2. Trace chalk with paint and add shadow
Step 3. Retrace drawing in chalk
Step 4. Darkest dark, lightest light. Then work from dark to light.
When I was done I put down a neutral background…
I’ve been taking a class at the Art Students League. In addition to that I’ve been continuing my own work at home. Here’s a sampling of what I’ve completed since my last post.
This one was weird and I scraped it off the canvas after I photographed it. I didn’t like the composition and that really matters to me…
This was my first home work from class. I like the composition. It may be worth glazing color onto this one eventually.
This is one I’ve been working on for a while. I think it’s almost done!
A quick little drawing which I quite like 🙂
