|1/5/21 Lauren, 15- and 5-minute poses (I wish I'd done these on black paper!)|
Chiaroscuro is the theme this month at Life Drawing +. The scheduled models have all promised to deliver dramatic
lighting as they pose. Model Lauren this week stepped it up further with
colored lights. In some poses, more of her was in shadow than in light, and
it was an enjoyable challenge to try to capture that. It would be difficult enough
in an actual life-drawing studio, but on Zoom, it was even more challenging as
the unlighted areas quickly dropped away into darkness.
It wasn’t until I was scanning my sketchbook pages for this
post that I had my V-8 moment: I should have used black paper for some
of these! I’ll be ready next time.

Looks like a different sketching session. What kind of ink did you use for the purple?ReplyDelete
It's a Kuretake Brush Writer! The ink is water-soluble and really intense!Delete
