🖍️🥮 WELL DEARS, SKETCHING IS AN AMAZING PRACTISE AND IF AFTER THIS, WE CAN BAKING SOMETHING, THEN IT IS PERFECT.
This life model likes to hold an unusual pose and this one was great, but an upside down face is really hard to draw. And the foreshortening was wicked. I used Daler Rowney artist’s pastels onto a heavy textured vintage paper, size about A1 – quite big. There was a spotlight on over our model which gave some radical shadows which reminded me of Toulouse-Lautrec’s drawings and paintings at The Folies Bergere so I used quite a harsh purple and green palette. This was a couple of weeks ago at the Swansea Print Workshop weekly life drawing session.
And today I did some baking. Young nephew called over so I had an excuse. Jam tarts (home made jam natch), apricot tart and chorizo / butter bean / cheese pasties. Not much left now 😀
