SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2 - NO 2
|'GERALDINE, THE GREEN DREAMER'|
Coloured Pencil on Canvas Paper - by Jez
I was quite surprised and pleased with the result, and because of the 29 Faces challenge to move outside our comfort zone, I have found a new way of drawing and colouring that is very effective.
Here is an enlarged section of the page, giving a close-up of the canvas paper texture:
I like the fact that the 'wells' in the canvas texture remain white and give a glow to the face. If I want to add a little shading I just need to colour with more pressure in order to fill the 'wells' a little more.
I'm very pleased with Geraldine, and will certainly repeating the process. I hope one or two of you might be encouraged to try coloured pencil on canvas paper.
