|Devin 03/17/2016, 20"x30", Graphite and Shellac on Paper, 2016|
Day 4 and Final day of this drawing.
Devin was unable to come for the morning. Amaya did a lecture on toning paper with Shellac. there then was a period of drawing where I really was able to work on the background. Adding the details of the heater and the other room details.
As I was working on the drawing the main parts that had to get punched up really started becoming obvious. I created a checklist for when Devin came in.
Job #1 was the feet. The lighting had changed over the week so they were brighter in this pose but I decided keep with my original thumbnail. It actually took a while to draw them. The foreshortening of the right foot was a little maddening.
Job 2 was the face and neck. Devin has a lot of ornaments. I really wanted to get the details of them as done as a could. Glasses were already done. Nose ring and cowrie shell necklace check and check.
The final job was to really push the half tones of the drawing.
I am really happy with how this drawing came out. I'm looking forward to start next week's drawing.
