life drawing 24/08/2010

Second week at life drawing after a couple of months off. I wasn't too happy with a lot of the drawings I did tonight, the one scanned here was the best I think. I was trying some new materials tonight - a block of black chalk pastel - don't think i'll keep using it as it wasn't too fun/easy to use :-)

First day back at life drawing class and things were rather difficult! After the usual set of 20 30 second sketches to get into the right frame of mind we did some longer poses, around 20 - 40 minutes. The first was done in charcoal in a looser style, the lying down pose was done with a couple of different weights of pencils.

illustration friday - equipment

oil paint on canvas

illustration friday - equipment

not sure why I chose military equipment for this oil on canvas painting. I've only done a couple of paintings so far and still finding it pretty difficult to get it looking realistic. Also.. there's some reflected light from the paint, especially visible in the sky - finding it hard to photograph oil paints as they can be a bit reflective.
