‘Mariano’ by Maggie Jarman



Conté chalk and hard pastel on paper, 52 x 35 cm

Started in a February Tuesday Life Drawing and worked on further from purchased recording of that session; the glorious golden/red tones were far too wonderful to waste!

Here I enjoyed the complete concentration such that time seemed to vanish; I learned to stop just before falling into the ‘overworking it’ trap. Also, I tried to employ two key good practice points, looking for complimentary colours and changing a colour, not of itself, but by what one puts beside it.
