So good to get the chance after many months to spend four hours drawing – no teaching – no pressure- just drawing with a group of like-minded people.
As usual the session started with a couple of 10 – 15 min poses some 2 min sketches and then into a long one.
I decided to give Arches oil paper another go. It’s very absorbent and the pigments tended to appear much darker than I expected them to be – adding white only made them chalky. By the end of the day I felt I was getting to grips with the combination probably because there was a build -up of paint and the paper was less absorbent. Could have done with another couple of hours!
First sketch of the day – cropped!
