Copying from a charcoal life drawing that I did several months ago, I compared my Derwent Inktense pencil to my go-to Stabilo Aquarellable. They came out fairly even - at least on the Yupo that I used here. Couldn't resist using a little ink, though. I love the pens that are permanent ink, but until they dry, a little water can make some nice values. This drawing was done on 12 x 9" Yupo. If you have a minute, please check out my oil pastel blog. Thanks so much for stopping by!
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.
