Portrait of Michael, charcoal and white chalk on grey Roma paper.

Model painting in progress. First I did a pencil study, then a transfer drawing which I transferred to my stretched canvas, and today I did the underpainting in raw umber.

Every Monday between 5 and 7 o’clock we have a class called Copy the Masters, in which we draw or paint from other artists’ work. I’m doing a charcoal and chalk study of a part of a painting by Jusepe de Ribera. I just love how expressive his figures are!

This morning I started this charcoal and white chalk drawing of pigeons, and after having been at the natural history museum and drawn there (I drew the Siskin bird that’s in the picture below) I continued this at home. I’m really happy with the way it turned out :)

Today i tried reductive drawing for the first time, and it was so much fun! I meant to draw a study of the arm but i just couldn’t keep myself from drawing a bit of the torso and head as well.

Small composition studies for a still life.
