Went well today. Only 134 days left til I have blogged daily for a year. Starting to sound doable.
Materials used Neocolor II Caran d’Ache and #140 Fabriano Artistico
Today was life drawing at USA Aiken and the lovely Elena was our model.
Here’s how she looked after the first twenty minute break. That lemon yellow caran d’ache had been calling my name and saying use me use me!!!
TIP I take pics while I am working on it so I can see how it looks from a distance. You can really see your mistakes when you do this. And they are handy for a WIP work in progress blog post!!👍
My friend Ruth said she didn’t like the yellow and could I make her peachier. Ruth is usually right so I did. I also needed to lighten the shadows on her face which was making her look too old.
I lifted the shadows with a good stuff hogbristle oil paint brush and blotted off with a bounty towel. That#140 Fabriano Artistico is tough paper. Always amazes how you can wipe off the Fabriano.
Thanks for looking.
