Figure Drawing in sketchbook
Did this last night at my figure drawing group. I had planned on painting on canvas for the 3 hour pose, but my painting materials were in my car...and my car is in the shop. So, I ended up using my toned sketchbook and various drawing/painting tools. I drew the figure in with charcoal and white chalk (using the tone of the paper to my advantage). Then I used a red prismacolor colored pencil to put some warmth back into the figure. I cut into the silhouette of the figure with acrylic paint and some ink. Then, I popped some highlights with white gouache. Had a lot of fun working on this.
