Art Connection - Tuesday 23rd April 2024

Week 103 - Chimpanzee in Charcoal, Graphite and Pencil & White gel pen


Hello Everyone

Hope you will join me online this week for some art where we'll have some more practice on ou drawing and blending skills ?

We meet every Tuesday morning from 11am to 12.15pm to draw/paint together. No experience needed. Complete beginners are very welcome.

Genesis 1:23-25 (NIV)

23 And there was evening, and there was morning - the fifth day.

24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.

25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

This week we'll paint a chimpanzee using Charcoal or Graphite pencils/sticks and also use a white fine pen to draw in fine hairs (White charcoal can also be used for this).

If you're able to pre-sketch the outline that'll give us a head start but don't worry if you don't manage to do so.

If you are able to print out the image to have it beside you whilst drawing, hopefully you'll find this helpful on the day. Otherwise, you can perhaps view it on your phone as this will allow you to zoom in on the detail also ?
