this is the same compostion i did before but this time the exercise was to make a "grey" out of the mixture of red+blue+yellow. Adding this mix to a lot of white oil then adding little bits of colours, always the primary. the idea is to have little contrast between each color. Still have to make some corrections (like the small cup shape) and add some details.

drawing class

drawing class Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
these are the compositions we had to draw today. in the last one i couldn't supposedly use shadows, only lines, so i used a 8B pencil (sort of conté) instead of charcoal but couldn't help adding some (shadows). i also used some cream-coloured pastel pencil to enforce the light. these are all big sketches of about 60x80cm., big for me at least that always drew in small formats...=)

life sketching

life sketching Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
today i started with a very quick and simple sketch (up-right) then added some detail on a second one (down-right) and made the last one. in fact all them are super quick sketches. Of course i colored them at home with gouache a-la-watercolour, hehe.
