|Pitcher With Black Plum, Pastel, student work, one hour.|
|Thumbnails, I did two, but many more were needed.|
|My first drawing done on my own after class last week.|
I'm told I went into the drapery too much, but drapery fascinates me.
It has the power to liven up a painting with directive action. I think it
could be a subject by itself.
NOTE: The sanded paper really does great cutting the dust, but nevertheless there is some. I wore my patent leather witch shoes and they really needed to be dusted off before I took off. I also threw a large nail brush into my case when I got home. My hands really need a scrubbing after the session. Three washes didn't do it. But what the hell, it was Halloween and witches don't have the cleanest nails on the block.
NEXT WEEK: WASHES USING WATER, REGULAR TURPINOID (NOT THE OILY, ORANGE STUFF)-- OR RUBBING ALCOHOL.
I might play around a little with that between now and then. I do think I would like an under-painted surface on these off white sheets. I think a sanding board may be in order, also an 1 1/2" housepainter's brush.
Today, back to Mr. FP.
