WIP - Gaia, and further 5 and 6

Het was weer tijd om verder te gaan met de tekening van Gaia. Daarom ben ik begin augustus weer verder gegaan met Gaia haar lichaam.

In de tijd dat ik niet bezig was met tekenen en/of schilderen heb ik ook zitten nadenken hoe ik in de toekomst verder wil gaan met mijn blog. Ga ik verder met de stap-voor-stap sessies of ik plaats alleen werk wat klaar is. Ik heb gekozen voor het laatste en dat betekent dat het volgende werkstuk pas op het blog gezet wordt als het helemaal afgewerkt is. Dit geeft me ook meer tijd om te kunnen experimenteren met verschillende materialen en andere dingen te doen zoals huishouding, werken en andere hobby's.

It was time to proceed with the drawing of Gaia. So I started again in early August and I went on with the body of Gaia. 

In the time I was not busy with drawing and / or painting, I have been thinking how in the future I want to continue with my blog. I continue with the step-by-step sessions or I let you only
see work that is finished. I opted for the latter choice and the next drawing or painting you will see is completely finished. This also gives me more time to experiment with different materials and do other things such as household, work and other hobbies.


And two weeks later:

Material: soft pastel (different brands) 
and Derwent pastel pencil light gray pastel paper
- Daler Rowney 98 lbs - 160 g/m2 
12 x 9 inches or 31 x 23 cm

Tot de volgende keer.
See you next time.

WIP - Gaia, and further 4

The central heating in my atelier is working again and it's great to working  in a heated room. Because we did DIY, we also worked on the ceiling in the toilet. The upstairs neighbor had a leak and we had water damage stains on the ceiling. That is now ready. I also had a few days off from work and I have done other things such as quilting. Today I've started again with Gaia. I've started to get more depth in the drawing and I made a beginning with the body.

WIP - Gaia, and further 3


This and last week I have done very little. First I have added a yellow layer and a little bit brown shadow added here and there.  I'm now started with the deepening of the hairs. Soon I will start with the body of Gaia.

Because the central heating in the drawing room does not work, I have chosen to temporarily just to stop painting. It's too cold to sit there for hours, despite a heavy sweater. In about two weeks the central heating is finished and then I can back down without I'm cold.
