Another couple of ink & food colouring imags.

Key for each line.
Map drawing of model.
I chose four different lines. Different in style, colour & media. I chose a pale nude colour for the model's skin, a grey felt tip pen for the model's hair, Black ink for the model's clothes, and charcoal for the duvet the model was sitting on.

Pin & charcoal drawing.
Firstly, I drew the model in a faint pencil sketch & then using a sewing pin, I pierced the wholes over the pencil outline.
Using the first image I created using a sewing pin, I placed it onto a plain white sheet of paper & overed the entire page with charcoal. The dust from the charcoal fell through the tiny pierced holes onto the sheet of paper underneith. The image above is the final outcome of this drawing practice.

Quick 5 mintue sketch.

Blind contour & continuous line drawing.

Graphite & rubber.
Cover the entire page with graphite & then using a rubber, create the areas that are light on the model. Then use the graphite stick to show the darker areas on the model.

Oil pastel & ink wash over the top.

The items on my table!

Black ink & food colouring.

Negative spacedrawing using a graphite stick.

Two tone oil pastel drawing. Lighter oil pastel used on the areas of the model that were light and the darker oil pastel for the darker areas on the model.
