Back to my Thursday’s Drawing for 1/2 hour, continuing with Classic.
Today I worked the draperies adding more charcoal to darken them – they still aren’t as dark as I would like. Also using a charcoal pencil 3B, I worked some on the folds and drew in lost and found edging for where the drapes meet the floor. Perhaps I’ll spray the piece with a fixative before I remove the frisket from the ballerina giving more surface to darken the draperies a bit more.
The frisket was removed from the floor and using HB and 3B graphite began to work with the darks of both sides and the very foreground of the floor, then lightly began to draw in the spot where it will showcase the ballerina’s feet. Oh yeah, her feet and legs are missing because the frisket was torn while I was trying to affix it to the drawing paper, lol! You got to love it – nothing stops me from experimenting, can’t figure out how else I’ll learn and this was a first time using frisket. Hopefully I can pull off drawing in her lovely little legs and feet!
Here she is ~
