Today at Drawing Club we had a new model. He’s going to pose for us over the course of 3 weeks.
This means we can work over a longer period using oil paints. I’ve never used oils before, so this week I just used my water soluble pencils and pastels, and next week I’ll take the plunge and buy some oils.
So I guess this is (part of ) a sketch before I embark on my first oil painting. Embarking is the right word: from the Italian ‘barca’ meaning ship. I’m sailing into new territory !
