Drawing in the Sun
August 23, 2010 § 3 Comments
On Saturday I went for a walk around Chartres. It was a really hot day, in the 30’s.
I decided to go around the most touristic area that is Chartres Cathedral (Cathédrale Notre-Dame). I think everyone was out that day, enjoying the sun after days of it being overcast. I used white pastel to sketch some of these scenes (it was a bit messy as the pastel was melting with the heat).
White pastel and black paint are one of my favourite mediums. I enjoy the qualities the white pastel makes; sometimes it is difficult to see what lines you have drawn, so once you wash black paint over it you have an element of surprise.
