Conté crayons, A3 paper.
Thanks! It was fun to try conté
This is your first try with conte? Well done! I love it too. I just started to use it myself again. Nupastel is very similar – bigger sticks and a bit softer. I like using a variety of mediums – ink, washes and marker – for sketching.
Thx! I’ll try to find some Nupastel. I like to be forced to draw larger areas than I normally do. Certainly with short poses of 4 minutes you need to experiment a bit.
I like to draw with the whole side of the conte or nupastel – it gives a sharp and aggressive line. I rarely use the tip. You can then slide it sideways and cover a large area. I am fond of smudging with my fingers or using a stomp. I only use a kneaded eraser to ‘draw’ through the smudges. I’ll check on you later to see what you’re doing.
