Live class – Fragilina – Nancy


Hi Matt,

Sorry to hear about the tech issues.ย Here’s my repost.

Subject: Fragilina by Attilio Piccirilli 1923. Gray toned paper (Strathmore), graphite (Blackwing 602) and white charcoal (General). About 80 minutes (of the 90 minute class) plus 30 minutes after.

This was my first time using gray toned paper. I really like using natural brown, tan, and now gray-toned papers, though I’m still feeling my way around adding values with the paper as a midtone. Also have discovered that the Strathmore paper, while lovely to draw on, doesn’t really cope well with erasing. Which is just another reason to draw more lightly. ๐Ÿ˜„

I seem to have made her less fragile and more healthy. ๐Ÿ˜† And I have no clue what is going on with her legs. However, it was a fun excercise!

Thanks as always and happy Memorial Day to you and your family!
