new method practice 3
Here's the scan of the finished drawing. I'm not certain what day next week we'll be painting though, but surely I'll find something ludicrous to post Monday in case I don't have the next step in this painting. This Friday is bit and run as usual.
To answer questions from the previous post's comments :
Michael Dooney said... Uh even after two posts I'm not quite following what the "new Method" is ;) Are you saying that you are painting on a gessoed board instead of watercolor paper????
The new method is the painting, the drawing is pretty straightforward at this point.
nicholas said... Cory, I totally understand drawing over too much texture. I don't like it either. Did you use a different pencil or something to offset this?
Sort of, I used a regular pencil like I usually do for most of it, but for some areas I experimented with darker ones -- 5Bs and 8Bs. In the end I was happiest with the way the mechanical pencil covered the texture but more pleased with the values of the darker Bs. Awesome! No definitive solution!
Next post, Friday : bit and run 10
