NEW SET OF FOUR ON THE DRAWING TABLE. Work under progress

By

MONOCHROMATIC PLAY STAGE: White&Black + Sanguine 
Going larger for these (23X60 cm), not very large you might say, but to me these are the largest papers I’ve worked on so far in the exercise series. So, this is a new round with monochromatic. I had meant to use raw sienna for this set. But then I came over some of my new sketching crayons, including this orange which I used in the initial mark making. This colors is far away from the raw sienna so I had to do some rethinking. Of course, it turned out I didn’t have this color (it turned out to be sanguine) in oils, so I used sanding paper to make powder of the crayon before mixing this into the white.
