Bargue #2- Complete!

Bargue Drawing #2
graphite on Stonehenge paper
© Nicki Ault, 2014

It was a long road and that was a heck of a time-consuming beard, but I got there. My second Bargue drawing is finished! It was a love/hate relationship, but in the end love prevailed. A huge shout-out to the most patient and inspiring instructor I have had in awhile, Craig Berry at Atelier 2302 in Saskatoon. Next week I move on to a new challenge and start Bargue #3.

* If anyone has tips on how to get good photographs of drawings, please share them in the comments below. Thanks!

Hi Marcia,

Yes, it definitely teaches patience and it is fantastic training for the eye. I feel like I can "see" better. I love your drawings, especially the ones that incorporate pastel.
