WIP caran d’ache on kilimanjaro half sheet
This Is the first standing pose I have ever drawn so I was thrilled to get her in proportion. I have to give ilanya kudos for holding a rock steady pose for two hours. Not easy to do.
Today I started drawing her with a light grey crayon. Next came flesh color. That went well.
Then I went for burnt sienna instead of yellow ochre and it was just too dark. When I added cobalt well. That was trouble. I almost destroyed her with burnt sienna and cobalt blue. Made an icky green. But when you think it’s ruined it can be a good thing. You don’t care what you do with it and experiment.
I got out an ultramarine blue crayon burnt umber and the black. I never use the black. And I try not to use the dark colors on a young life model. Today I didn’t care. Anything was better than the ick blue and burnt sienna.
I like the fake blues and Browns I used in her. Anyway thanks for looking!!!
