Forgot to factor in breaks! Considering I have not picked up a pencil since 15 December and this was a three hour pose it worked out better than I thought.
I was disappointed that I was not able to achieve all my objectives – principally experimenting with other materials and papers. This drawing would be great as a starter for a painting. However – the sketching still needs work. What I would benefit from is doing more exercise in tone. I would also like to introduce ink wash into my drawing and working back into them with crayon, charcoal etc. Some of the line work is too harsh.
Anyway as a starter for ten for the beginning of 2017 I am pleased to be back on it again.
