A Drawing A Day 1144

Progress Shot 09

Ok, so, yesterday’s progress shot was the one where I finished with silverpoint. That was as far as I could push it in terms of values. Actually I thought it worked pretty well. Considering, it is always grey and turns blackish by oxidising over hundreds of years like the renaissance master drawings. Nevertheless, I think I got quite a lot out of it. It’s given I am using a prepared paper to maximise the effectiveness.
So now, wanting more blacks, I turn to black chalk, and wanting more whites, I turn to white chalk. This is the first progress shot where I add a bit of both.
