Well, friends, today we started week three of our five week course. We started charcoal and a two-class drawing. We covered preparing the contour and then adding some initial value. I assume next week we will continue to turn the form and finishing it up. I felt like I had a bit of a break through with my contour tonight.
Now, I don’t know if it was due to the fact that we were using charcoal pencils instead of graphite or if I am just starting to get muscle memory for the new way we’ve been holding our pencils. Regardless, I was pleased with my progress. After I got to the point shown above, I was nervous to move on to adding value. I ended the class on the image below, having added some initial tone but not completing it. That’s how I’ll be spending my three hours next week.
