Drawing in Color: Landscapes and Metal

© Barbara Goodsitt

My most recent classes of "Drawing in Color" covered rendering copper and drawing landscapes. Two very different approaches to drawing.  The copper pitcher is tightly rendered using a sequence of layering colors from dark to light, then burnishing.  The landscape is very loose. I used the side of my pencil to create the foliage on the tree. To create the sky, I shaved some true blue prismacolor and pressed the powder into the paper. I used an embossing stylus to create texture and lines for the grasses.
