Life Class Term 2

In Life Class I've been trying out some different media for a change. I struggled like hell with pastels-talk about being outside my comfort zone-there's nothing like using blunt chalk to expose your weaknesses!


Conte crayons were a bit more manageable but the drawings are still inept!

I went back to pencil for some fancy anatomical studies.










Class-mate warm ups.

Difficult isn't it? Are you using chalk pastel? I found that impossible, but when I switched to NuPastel and stuck with it, I got the hang of it. Try chisel tip layout marker, now that's fun! And very colorful too :)

It's always a nightmare trying new media - you did well! Of course the pencil ones are totally brilliant as usual and I love your litle character studies of the class.

Appreciate your humility. As usual, the talent shines through even where some awkwardness is apparent
