Farah Dawood @ Dr Sketchy

After a year, I finally managed to attend a Dr. Sketchy Life drawing session. In fact I've organized it, with the help of many friends in Singapore. It was very fun indeed. My palette is, Cadmium Red, Raw Sienna, Chrome Yellow, Indigo Blue, burnt sienna and a very light touch of Alizarin crimson.

Zen was her name, but zen she was not.

Yesterday session was akward, the model showed 1 hour late. And maybe because she felt guilty, she was kind of uncomfortable. It was just strange to draw someone, naked, who didnt want to be there. I tried to make abstraction of it but in the end that particular mood showed up in my drawing in a very particular way. Every drawing I could do, was when she couldnt make eye contact with me. Every front drawing, are just worthless. I'm feeling kinda stuck with watercolor, having difficulty to judge my improvement, I decided to do some india ink. I also tried a reese pen, and a wet brush to smear the ink for shaded area. I really enjoyed it.
