30 mins - Faber Castell crayons on coloured paper
Tuesday afternoon I attended the second of my life sessions. The two hours went by so fast but we managed to get some very interesting and difficult angles into the five poses we sketched and I tried out a variety of media.
3 mins - Pigment liner - W&N sketchbook
5 mins - Ink - W&N sketchbook
10 mins - Charcoal pencil - W&N sketchbook
I'm quite happy with a number of things I have managed to accomplish during these two classes; my proportions, weight distribution, lack of fear and openness to experimentation, stepping out of the comfort zone.
I enjoyed all of the media I used in today's class but the sticks of Faber Castell crayons, much like willow charcoal, felt most comfortable to me. I enjoy a medium I can push and pull around and I believe the security of knowing I am able to do this allows me to approach the piece in a much looser, more confident fashion.
