This morning I slept late, after a very busy week, and only got to my local Life Drawing Club with 1.5 hours to work on drawing or painting the model.
I was going to buy oil paints and try oil painting for the first time, but events caught up with me and I never got to the art shop to buy them.
So instead I used the chalk pastels which gave me so much trouble the first time I used them. This time, I am really pleased with the results. If you smudge them as soon as you apply them, these chalks are absolutely wonderful. The drawing is quite big in my sketch book — I wish I could fit the entire thing in my scanner.
