Arrived early and grabbed a coffee. I did two sketches. Started a 20 minute sketch before the others arrived. This statue is a replica of a soapstone carving, which is originally 14 cm tall. This statue is part of the Civic Art Collection.
In my second sketch I am playing around with preparing my support prior to the event. I used watercolor and some gesso. I applied using a combination of brush, knife and stamping. I like how it allows me to relax, and I can just concentrate on the drawing. I added thicker pen at home and some marker for shadows. I also added plant material to the planter, poor thing only has a couple of weeds 😦
