Italian Decadence 6" x 18" Coloursofts & Prismacolors on Pastelbord
You might notice I chose a different reference from the one in the video in the last post. I wanted it to look more decadent so I decided on this set up where the satin fabric played a larger role. There are a lot of objects in this piece, but I think it works because of the way like colors/values are grouped together. Please click on the photo to view it larger.
People often ask how long my drawings take to do, so for this one I tried to figure that out.
Thursday: 4 hours setting up still-life, Photoshopping and drawing line drawing on board.
Friday day: 5 hours drawing (with breaks)
Friday night: 4 hours
Saturday day & night: 8 hours
That adds up to 21 hours for this little piece. Although I have to admit that the cow still-life, which is the same size, took me about 14 hours. The Italian one has more objects that are also more detailed so it took a lot more time.
