Snow has started to melt but it’s still piled high, so Athos, Porthos, and Aramis (the Three Musketeers) decided to meet and draw indoors at Celine’s house. She has a studio full of plaster casts that provide fodder for sketching fanatics. They invited me, d’Artagnan, along as the token anglophone of the group.
We had a great time sketching, looking at art books and talking about our upcoming road trip to Ottawa’s National Gallery. More on that later.
I sketched a couple smaller, painted plaster figurines in a Stillman & Birn sketchbook using a Pilot Prera and Lexington Gray ink. Faber-Castell Albrecht-Durer watercolor pencils were used to add a hint of color. I love these pencils more everytime I use them as you can completely eliminate the lines made by the pencil.
It’s not location sketching but it’s sure good practice and goodness knows I need that.
