|Melvin Day 1 of 4, 20"x30", Graphite and Shellac on Paper, 2016|
We are starting a new pose this week in the Anatomical Drawing class.
I got new paper with a better tooth for this drawing and it made a very big difference
I also toned the paper with Shellac. I bought the Shellac for painting and Amaya said it may be too potent for drawings. As I began to draw with it, I instantly understood what she meant. In the shaded a part of the leg, the shellac is keeping the graphite from being easily accepted by the paper.
The Drawing process is very Bargue Method I did manage to get a lot done in this class period. I completed the contour drawing and began to block in the shadow shapes.
This drawing is going pretty well.
