'Graphite over Underpainting'
Hard working students and a delightful venue with beautiful gardens in rural Gloucesteshire for a two-day workshop on graphite with underpainting.
First a quick outline drawing of this wonderful old sunflower seed head.
Then I applied colour using a combination of coloured pencil and pastel pencil which I then dissolved into the paper using a clear alcohol based solvent pen. No baby oil this time as I want the paper completely dry and clean very quickly so I can start the pencil drawing over the top.
