How exciting! I submitted a charcoal drawing to the Art Prof September Art Dare and got an honourable mention! Art Prof sent me a t shirt as a prize, all the way from the US. It was a very bright spot in an otherwise crappy week. Have a look at the video above.
Last Saturday was monthly life drawing day at the art gallery. I tried some tinted charcoal for the first time - very different consistency, very different drawing experience. I like some of the smudgey effects but need to work with it more to bring out contrasts better. Different materials change the way you draw which can be quite interesting.
All in all, not a terribly good day though. Wasn't pleased with anything I did, particularly the painting which is a disappointment. Hoping for a better session in November.
