Drop In at the Pence

Some better drawings done at the Pence Gallery in Davis. Mostly 5, 10 and 20 minute poses. I had thought about doing some painting – just value studies. But when evening comes around, I’m too tired to think about lifting a brush.

I was working with 4B soft charcoal on smooth newsprint. Got too dark for me so I switched to 2B charcoal to sketch in the construction lines and then work with 4B to darken some shadows. It worked pretty well. Sometimes changing gives a different outlook.

Detailed parts like the hands and feet are hard to do in a full figure quick drawing. So I fade them out. But I’m getting better with the facial.

Now my plan with these drawings is to paint, starting with black and white studies and then color. I’m a little apprehensive about meeting the challenge. But I’ll never know if I don’t go forward.
