I snapped a few photos the other day at a seminar on aging (don’t ask,) and here are a couple drawings I made of people in the audience. I decided to use wax crayons.

Still working on the back wall of the new ink drawing, but there’s nothing much to post yet, so I thought I’d dig out a few old figure drawing sketches to keep it active here. These were drawn with wax crayon on 12 x 18″ newsprint. I should have a new update coming on the ink drawing in a couple days.
At last I’ve managed to squeeze in enough time to finish the drawing; although, I may go back to alter the curtain some. I think it needs some brightening up, or add more highlights.
I’ve enjoyed working with this wax crayon medium on this project, and I learned quite a bit in the process about how to handle it more effectively, so I definetly want to return to it again.
This distressed method of scratching away the wax is a slower process than I’m used to, but it’s worth it to get the look that I want.
Here I’m just showing the new areas of her right, left thigh, and buttock. Once I get the area the way I like it, I coat it with a layer of the Dorland’s medium to help set it so it won’t easily get scratched away accidently.
