This is the model from yesterday’s Zoom drawing session. She has beautiful expressive features and it was a pleasure to sketch her. A positive feature of Zoom is that it allows the artist to be very close to the model, much closer than would be comfortable in an actual drawing session.
I prepared my black Bristol board with several coats of acrylic gloss medium ahead of time, so it had some of the non absorbent characteristics of yupo paper. I worked on an easel so the gouache would flow downwards and make interesting textures that emphasized the models expressiveness.
