This week in drawing class at City Lit we got to play with colour!!
For 3rd exercise the still life was moved a further 90 degrees and zooming in on detail with v large orange elipses
Final version improved by cropping but ran out of time to increase range of tones with more darks and lights. Composition isn't great- it's hard working on such a large scale and could have done with more variety of marks. But I had fun!!
Nothing to show here for the printmaking this week. Apart from taking in some black paper to take some embossed prints of my collagraph plates I was mainly preparing a plate for hard ground etching. Polishing the plate with brasso reminded me still need to do the knocker on our newly painted front door! Then it was bevelling edges with file; degreasing with ammonia/ whiting mix and applying and removing hard ground wax with a roller ( a knack that obviously needs considerable practice) Anne-Marie was very patient with me.
