If I am not working on a series, I like to be in the moment, and today's snowfall and mild temperatures provided lots of inspiration. The process we used was lovely - using charcoal, mostly on its side, to energetically draw woodsy lines on canvas. Then I sprayed (outside) the canvases with workable fixative. Using titanium white, we pushed at the image, blurring and adding a sense of snow. This process was repeated until each had a forest they could truly call their own. We lightly tinted our canvas - mostly with gel plus Hooker's green, finishing off with some snow 'spray'. I added a few red berries to my piece, too.
I would definitely like to explore this process further. I love the freedom of drawing with charcoal and conte. This will be my suggested project this week.
