The jellies again, this time using a Berol charcoal stick, extra soft, and Rembrandt white demi-pastel. This is done from memory. More free-form. At first, I kept “trying” to get “jellyfish.” Then I relaxed into the process, and just worked from what I remember of seeing jellyfish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The exhibits are large, and the water in the tank is always in motion. Despite the fact that you’d never want to touch a jellyfish, they feel so tactile and sensual, visually. Floaty, almost an airborne feel, in the sense that they move on currents.
