The latest news in my artistic life
Casey - thank you for stopping by. I see from your journal that you are also doing lovely work.
you've been busy, girl! love the charcoals but you know how i feel about color. that red is amazing!
Billie - interesting how the B&W can help the color in the long run. I continue my studies in the hope that it will make the colors richer and more true.
Robin - These charcoals are just beautiful. I'm mad about that lace on the pillow and the glass is lovely translated to oil. Great work! - Robyn
Robyn - I did not know who MrsSnowy was. Thanks for letting me know. How are you?Thank you for stopping by. Fun stuff huh? Amazing stuff this charcoal. Who would have thought a burned stick could create art.
I love your charcoals and the beautiful and brilliant darks and lights and painterly strokes. I wish I knew a way to work with charcoal that didn't end up with me covered in black. I watched a guy sitting in front of me do amazing large charcoals in figure drawing group Friday night. I think I need to explore charcoal again! Oh...and the little oil is really nice too...I like the reflections and transparency.
My secret is using charcoal pencils. I rarely touch the charcoal itself. Never do my hands touch the paper. Years ago I was told that you transfer oils from your skin, even without knowing it, and charcoal and pencil do not adhere to this. The chamois that I use, is only dirty on one side, so there is always a clean side to hold on to. If I ever use a stick of it, I always wash up after. I think the hardest part to charcoal is how to store it after.
Your drawing of the pillow is just stunning.
I agree with Jafabrit. The pillow is marverous. such detail on the lace.
thank you jafabrit - I know it is strange to some, but detail is meditative to me.
John - appreciate you stopping by.
yes the pillow with the lace,very crafty!
