On Sunday mornings from 10am to 12:30pm there is a figure drawing class at Crealde. I go periodically to play with new materials and to experiment. The drawings I have been doing for the Mennello Museum mural are being done on larger sheets of bond paper with pencils, prismacolor and watercolor. There is a good chance that sketches done for future blog posts will be done in this larger format. The bond paper I have started using accepts watercolor washes with ease. I love being able to throw down loose gestural washes and then putting line work on top of it. The pens I usually use tend to clog up if I sketch over a wash. What I need now is an 11 by 17 inch hardbound bond sketchbook.
