I haven’t got to do this since before Christmas. It’s nice to get back into Life Drawing again. It never get’s old. You never stop learning and improving!
Oil pastel on Tan Toned Paper 16″x20″
Now for something completely different! This is a pencil test for “Penguins Can’t Fly” without the ending. Some of the pauses will be longer than they are now. It will be entered in the SoDak Animation Festival. Animation created solely on the Ipad.
On Tuesday nights I meet with a group of artists to draw from a live model. Often the highlight of my weekdays. I tried conte crayons for the first time, it’s a hard pastel. I’ve done very little pastel, I am a painter, but I wish I would have thought of trying it sooner for this purpose. I like the immediacy of this medium. 24×18″ on brown paper, finished piece.
