And Now a Drummer!
Tony Savage / Sepia chalk on tan paper / 14 x 11
Tony is a local big band drummer and band leader. He posed holding a cymbal from his drum kit but I chose not to include it as I wanted to focus on his features. I tried out a new chalk dark sepia pencil from Koh-i-Noor. It was medium hard and nice to draw with but did not erase well so I was forced to be precise with my lines.
Thank you, Mary - he was an interesting character.Delete
Je schetsen zijn steeds heel realistisch Susan, het is altijd leuk om nieuwe materialen uit te testen....ReplyDelete
Yes, I try to experiment with new materials and techniques occasionally. Hopefully, it keeps one from getting stale.Delete
I wonder how many hours of daily sketching practice I need to reach your level of friendship with pencil. Great!ReplyDelete
You are well on your way by attending the life drawing sessions. They are scary at first but I think you wlil value the experience as much as I have.Delete
It looks like you and the new pencil get along very well!ReplyDelete
PS - Tony looks like another 19th c portrait :) :) Love it!
Thank you, Kathryn :)Delete
