14" x 18 Charcoal & White pencil
We will see tomorrow when I go to the studio to check the drawing one more time. The cameras in our smart phones are so practical. I helps me to photograph the work and look at it once I leave the studio. When you have looked at your artwork for hours you tend to overlook fundamentals. The phone allows you to stand back and study the work without the work being there. Looking at my drawing now, I know I'll be doing some touching up tomorrow. This method or technique is a little tedious for me. And, for a landscape like this one, no more staining the paper. Staining is nice when you're going to see the paper. And, I didn't leave enough of my paper showing, I got carried away with the white pencil. But my drawing just looks dirty in places. This method is also a lot like painting. I enjoy painting but I love drawing. I want to see more marks and not smudges. I've never liked using a stump or blending so if you do like to blend your marks, this technique is for you. Don't get me wrong, I love the Kassan's DVD on Drawing and I've learned a lot. I'll take a lot of what I've learned into painting and drawing. He also is coming out with a Painting DVD, I want it too.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
