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.
I decided to experiment more with the ink technique from yesterday’s lesson (4), then went to explore the city, followed by helping to prepare food for tea with my housemates. (5)
I continued to work with the ink pen drawing and decided to try to create highlights and shadows with mixing ink and water. (6)
Then went for a Vespa ride with my friend to see a view point of Florence from Fiesole at night (7).
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)
