I drew my latest tango dancers with vine charcoal, extra soft, on 12 x 9" plate Bristol. I love the way charcoal sort of sits on top of the smooth Bristol - can't explain it, but charcoal just has a different look and feel on this paper. Another joy for someone who LOVES to draw! Thanks for visiting my blog! Sold
I went to the Matisse exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art on Friday, then on Saturday, I attended a photogravure printmaking workshop sponsored by the McNay Art Museum. I've been a busy girl. See my August 23rd post.
I am Visual Language Magazine's "Artist of the Day" for August 16th! Thank You VL!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
