Painting and Drawing vol.5 (One-Year Course – Holly)

Week 5
Monday

Today we were shown a different ink mark-making technique. I found this to be very interesting and beneficial to my own drawing technique. (1)
I decided to try a portrait focused on heavy mark-making from one of Michelangelo’s pieces. (2)
I enjoyed working with this technique and think I will continue to practice in this way.
After class, I decided to bake a cake for my housemates. (3) Then went for a catch up with one of my friends.

Thursday
I decided to draw a fish oil painting from an old master’s work. (8) I enjoyed this as I found it more enjoyable to paint after learning the correct techniques with the colour mixing and happy with the results so far.
After today’s lesson I decided to continue to work on my ink drawings in preparation for Mondays lesson. (9,10)
