A few sketches from today’s life-drawing workshop
superimposed 2 minute charcoal sketches 0n cartridge paper – warming up time
35 minute charcoal sketch on cartridge paper – fun with mark-making!
2 hour oil sketch on Arches oil paper
This is the first time I’ve used Arches’ oil paper and I must say I rather liked it. Not what you would call a “fast” surface and the paint did tend to get absorbed by the paper quite a lot but much preferable to the usual oil paper block which I find slippery and difficult to build up layers in one sitting. The background colour is Attrament black from Schminke – a favourite of mine at the moment!
