Graphite

I have been going to have a go at Graphite drawing for some time .

Had this picture in my head ever since I saw it back in 2007, a really tremendous self-portrait Titled Joyride by Jake (Woodsac) on Deviant Art, from what I can see he has moved on  now, hope this credit is enough for the ref picture.

It sort of fits my art class project of a view through the window.

Instruments and rags

As we continue in my art class with our still life theme, we have tried musical instrument and mono printing, this is a wonderful technique where you paint glass or a ceramic tile with oil paint and by using pressure, transfer the image onto paper, it was suggested that you could only take a single print and to use smooth paper, I had a go using watercolour paper and water with my water soluble oil paint and got a very pleasing result that I might work up some more.

Then we went back to basics,  pencils and  cloth I am told this was first principles for artist and they would spend hours studying the folds in cloth, I loved this exercise and became completely lost in it for far too many hours in class and afterwards.

Wet Ear

I have  been following a set of posts on Will Kemps Art school blog and having a go at my  first oil painting, to be honest it’s my second but I abandoned my first as I really did not know how to approach using oil paints.

So painting over the  first and following the structured approach I feel I have some sort of foundation to continue.

I have one snag not sure if it’s because I painted over my first painting or I just added too much  oil to my mix I seem to have a wet ear, I am hoping time will sort this out.

Still I am pleased with my efforts and inspired to try again..
