I left her with just the stabilo black pencil and gel medium.
I painted her with acrylics over the stabilo pencil.
Well, if I am committed to posting an art du jour everyday if possile then I guess I should post things that don't really turn out as well. In Sharon's class we were to use just a black stabilo pencil and gel medium and you end up with a sketchy looking gray tone thing (Sharon's was precious) but it is really a good study in shadows. It seemed like to me that once I started setting the stabilo pencil with the gel medium I had only one shot at it to get the color in place. It is surprising how much pigment these pencils will put down. But all in all it was fun and a good exercise.I did these last night but I painted the top image in Photoshop this morning because she was just really scary. This is turning out to be an interesting art journal with girls I have painted form the different classes I have taken.
