3rd session 'Drawing from the Collections' at the British Museum was focused on volume and mass using the pots in the African Gallery ( and the addition of burnt sienna pastel to charcoal and white chalk of last week). I just love these pots and have drawn them before
There was a lot of small adjustments between these 2 stages, gradually adding tone, marks and textures. I thought I was ready for the white chalk but wasn't allowed it until I'd properly defined the dark areas. Good advice, along with showing where I hadn't quite described the shape, how to hint at texture without putting every last mark in, areas where I needed to work into more to balance more finished areas ( bottom right still need attention) Rydal tomorrow, I won't be short of inspiration ( my packing mainly consists of art materials and thermals!)
On the way home, the reflected evening light over the marshes between Stratford and Ebbsfleet was lovely despite being a bit out of practice taking photos at speed from the train.
