Drawing of an old Namibian Woman
This is part of a series of drawings that I will be downloading onto my blog. I do these exercises with my students and we have a lot of fun getting from A to B. We have used the 'wipe-out' method to establish healthy tonal ranges and soft edges. I am trying to encourage artists to really use this medium to the full and enjoy each stroke and possibly combine detailed tonal work with simple but expressive line as well. The design of the overall piece is just as important as the focal point.
