Friday Drawing: Kroeber Hall, UC Berkeley. March 22, 2013.
I am drawing with my trusty gold tipped Namiki fountain pen, with Noodler's Tienanmen Red ink. I use a Windser & Newton Sable watercolor brush #3 to fill in the shadows.
Getting warmed up. As always, I arrived during the 10 minute poses.
20 minute pose. It did not take the full 20, I was drawing in a smaller sketchbook, but it gave me time for filling in all the areas of Red.
Two 20 minute poses. I enjoyed breaking up her figure. This approach would be an interesting way to do some figure study paintings.
The last pose, which I thought was very lovely, very simple. Sometimes I enjoy the simple poses the most. But, my concentration was waning, so I focused on her face, which I screwed up, not once, but thrice!
