Some practice I did for TNWTD in the last couple of weeks. I didn't save most of it, but just to give an impression. The first three are a gesture, a contour and a modelled drawing (together a sustained study).
Then there is a modelled drawing in watercoulor and the last are drapery practices (only allowed to use three shades of gray)
First a drawing of Matisse in pastel I did a few weeks ago ... not my favorite material
The second is a copy of a drawing by a dutch master from our golden century (conte) and the last one is a drawing I started, but didn't finish yet ...
Finished the sustained study and drawing class started yesterday. Did a still live there, which a never would have done @home. Somehow I find still lives a little boring, which makes it difficult to setup a composition I like. However, if someone else does the setup and tells me to do one live gets a little simpler.
Also found a copy of a Sargent drawing I did a few weeks ago.
Yesterday I finished the thirth sustained study. The pose is the same as the prior one, only this time without clothing. Also some more sketches.
Finished my first drawing course landscape, but didn't take a photo yet.
Hmmm, the face of the modelled drawing doesn't look like me at all. Something went wrong here ...
hey, want to let you know that you´re on the right track. keep drawing! good speed!
i would suggest you to read the book "fun with a pencil" of andrew loomis. it´s free avaiable in the net. jsut google it. it helped me alot to understand basic form of the face and other basic. just take a look at it!
@HerrleerzeichenS: Thanks for the tip. I've got five Loomis books ready to print, but first I have to complete TNWTD. The schedules consume almost all the time I've got ...
I started a landscape in charcoal. Worked on it for about six hours now. I find it a real challenge how to make enough detail to trick the mind in seeing leaves.
Any tips, tricks, crits on this piece are more then welcome.
Haven't posted anything in a really long time. But have been browsing all the time.
Because I've learned (and enjoyed) a lot from seeing what others are doing I'm updating with stuff I've been doing the last couple of years (a small selection afcourse).
First off the cast drawing studies (still working on the last one)
