'First, Oil pastels on black paper. Would have been more effective with acrylic.
'Second, pencil sketch.
'Third, oil pastels based on design of pencil sketch. Hadn’t used oil pastels for ages so came with the idea of playing today.'
Sally L was there too, and says, ' Two Inktense drawings/washes of Jackie.
I went on a one day life drawing workshop last weekend, run by Malcolm Cudmore, which was surprisingly good, so I thought I’d better carry on before it all got consigned to the mists of memory.'
We are going to be ‘playing’ about with charcoal. Please bring any types of charcoal you have. As far as paper is concerned white and grey or fawn paper would be good. I also thought we could use watercolour with the charcoal, so please bring that medium. A ruler would be useful too so that initially we can square off a sheet of paper for experimenting with the various types of charcoal we all have.
I will bring some objects we can use as subjects and I will sit as a model for some of the time if you would like to try a portrait.
VERY IMPORTANT....FLOOR COVERING ESSENTIAL!
The forecast is talking of a cold snap, so wrap up well...
