Oliver Sin’s Workshop, Day 2

In Day 2, Oliver demonstrated with a charcoal pencil.

Oliver shows some of charcoal pencils on toned paper.

In the afternoon we worked on toned paper. But first we did some 10 minutes warm-ups on Strathmore drawing paper. The toned paper we use Canson Tientes. Oliver suggested used the smooth side for women and children’s portraits. The textured size best for men.

Spraying is not needed for charcoal pencils. Only for vine charcoal drawings.

Portraits from Life

Attended two live modeling sessions last week. Not so easy drawing from life. My drawings tend to be tighter than drawing from photos. Both models were clothed with Eva dressed in a flamingo dress.
