Entry for Jan 4, 2015 (first entry for 2015)

(It's been a bit of a hiatus, getting back into the rhythm of a new school year and such. Got a few things to share in the next while, though)
On the Sunday afternoon, I was over at the ARC studio. Alina was working, and it was another atelier black velvet backdrop.  The drawing got going slowly, and building up values took a while, so there's just the one for that afternoon.
This is Chinese ink, water-soluble graphite and oil-based pencil on an 18 x 24" sheet of Canson XL Watercolour paper.
The paper was buckling a fair bit under the washes, which got me thinking about heavier paper, at least where extended drawings are concerned.
