Charcoal on watercolour paper
9 x 12 inches
Barbara Muir © 2017Tonight I'm showing you a quick sketch I did today for a
finished portrait I'm hoping to do in the next few weeks.
For me a drawing is a great way to figure out what I'm
trying to do. This sketch could be polished, but instead
I'll probably do another drawing. I was using charcoal on
watercolour paper, and I may try another drawing on
smooth paper, or a line drawing.
It is very hot in Toronto -- it was 42 Celsius today with
the Humidex, which is 107 Fahrenheit, and way too hot for
we Canadian folks. So we stayed inside for most of the day
enjoying the air conditioning, and then sat on the front porch
with the animals where it's cooler in the late afternoon.
Have a cooling things down with art day
