I first learned about Let’s Face It – and ultimately signed up for the course – because of Iris Fritschi-Cussens and this week was her lesson. It was a quick and accessible lesson, just what I needed this week.
This was my first time buying a Stabilo All pencil – the only new art supply I have bought in several months – and I rather liked it. I think it will be a useful tool to use when working in acrylic paint in my illustrative style, using it in the same way I would use India ink with my ink and watercolour work.
I either like to work in an explosion of colour or with more simple colour palettes, often monochrome. This time I went monochromatic with blues. Iris had given a pep talk as part of her tutorial and I plucked a phrase from that, one that resonated with me, and added it to the more blank area of the composition.
