marker no.1, self portrait in pastel on charcoal paper, originally uploaded by martasart.
I've been having a difficult time again with peri-menopause symptoms. I see the doctor next week and will be begging to be placed on HRT again. Last night I took a sleeping pill just to get one good night's sleep. I did but was groggy most of the morning. None the less, I got right to work in class today.
We had to do two markers today. The first was a self portrait, life size using our nupastels. The second was to do a drawing using linear perspective. We could pick something in the studio or go outdoors. It was lightly raining so I just drew what was in front of me. Time allotted was 45 minutes for each drawing.
On Wednesday we are to take to class something that is curva-linear for line drwing. Hummmm
As for the rest of today I am going to begin to prepare some of my masonite boards for painting class on Friday and do one with a new medium I bought yesterday: Acrylic ground for pastel by Golden. I'll keep you posted!
