Tonight’s piece was a cheat. At last night’s session with Miss Brie, the majority of the drawings were either 5 minute sets or 10. Enough time to lay down lines and stub in shadows to give a bit of form, but not enough time to resolve much. Tonight’s round was quickly spent reworking a drawing with charcoal powder. I haven’t developed a predicable strategy for handling this stuff without making an unnecessary mess, so opening the tin in the gallery is pretty much out of bounds. Working on it though. Now that I’ve gotten a taste for dark value, I’m not keen on giving it up.
