I recently finished my drawing “Charity”. Working with perspective like this is a challenge but I learn every time I put forth this much effort. It’s also easier every time. Now I just need to buy some spray fixative so it won’t smudge all over the place.
In light of Inktober, working on “mother and child” as well as a few other oil paintings I haven’t had as much time to study as I’d like. But the few times I have had to work on these types of drawings I have been studying nuances of drapery and clothing folds. It is important to me that various clothing look like the correct material as well as look as if it has weight. Its going to be on when I get my powdered graphite from my parents house! In addition to the learning experience it is great to get the instant gratification of a pretty drawing. Rendering drapery on the level that I like in oils is not a fast process.
