I have always admired drawing on tinted paper using dark pencil and chalk. It is much like how you would start an oil painting with a neutral ground. I tried my hand at it for the first time tonight. I chose to draw an old roadster I saw last year. I am thrilled with the outcome. I can't wait ti start another one.
It is a creative weekend for me as i also printed and framed the prints for this years Art Show in Ringwood. It is one of my favorite events of the year. i find it amazing that a small church in New Jersey can pull off such a great show with so many awesome artworks to see.
