Socks and Undies!



I am really pleased with this one, so I was all exciting and wanted to show it to you! It was a sunny afternoon yesterday, so I put some undies on the line, then thought it made quite a good subject. I am still trying to get comfortable with the ink, so sketching all sorts.

It was tricky to make out in black and white: too much going on, as you can see from my original drawing above, so I did some colouring in Photoshop. I intended it to be fairly simple tinting, like yesterday's self portrait, but that didn't work very well with the stone work, and I ended up turning it into a proper painting.

By the way, the big knickers are John's not mine!!

I love ordinary subject matter like this, however I don't do it very often myself! It's a lovely drawing and painting, you've inspired me now :)

I think you've cracked it! all of a sudden the ink looks less 'inky' - very simple and confident, and the 'colouring in' looks fantastic - subtle, and it really adds to the picture. Great stuff!
