Today’s sketch – 10/18/05

  1. Love it! I’ll have to try out the Moleskine…I think I remember you said it didn’t take a wash too well though?

  2. Kate, it doesn’t take wash well at all, but if you put a tiny drop of liquid soap in the dip jar it seems to break the surface tension on the page and that helps.
    An alternative is to wet the page lightly all over first, then let it dry, then do the wash. It takes a few moments for the page to “relax” so the wash doesn’t bead up. But still, the paper is like a manila folder, not like real w/c paper. This one was done in the thin-paper Moleskine, which means the black went right through the back side of the paper. I’ll have to collage on that side if I want to make use of the page.

  3. like seeing how this is done with very little outline, just light and shade (whiich I find very diifficult to see)

    beautiful face, drawn from life?

  4. Thanks, Cin. It was drawn from a reference photo of a very old Chinese woman – an old vintage postcard from the early 1920s, my guess. I like to draw old people’s faces because they are so full of wrinkles and character and much more interesting in many ways than smooth young faces.
