Well, I did get into paints last weekend. However, to my chagrin, I learned that it is too cold out in my studio for paint to dry in a timely manner. I started two wipe-outs, which should have dried rather quickly since the paint was cut with thinner. However, by mid-week they were still wet to the touch. So I started a new drawing of one of the images that I was hoping to work up as an oil study.
It’s a pencil drawing of Crystal on Strathmor 500 series Bristol paper. Crystal and her lovely husband Casey were nice enough to come sit for me last week. I was hoping to do oil studies of both of them this week and start a real painting next week. We’ll see how it goes. Fortunately, the wipe-outs are dry now so I should be able to work on at least one of them this weekend.
