    Short couse continued

    In the next five lessons I did a few studies of hands and arms. The last lesson I wanted to do another Matisse drawing because my wall looked a little empty.

    First work @home

    I like the style of Matisse ... so I decided to buy a book with a lot of Matisse drawings. It seems good practice duplicating his drawings in between working through The natural way to draw.

    Time for Rodin

    Time for a change. In stead of using drawings to copy, I used pictures of Rodin's famoes kiss and thinker.

    Some TNWTD stuff

    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)

    More practice

    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 ...

    More practice

    @Katia: Thanks for the encouragement

    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.

    Sustained study 3

    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 ...

    More TNWTD stuff. The sustained study is ok I guess, but the head study is still way off ...

    Landscaping

    @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.

    More sketching

    Some sketching I did in between TNWTD. As you can see I've got much to learn yet.

    TNWTD stuff

    First one is a right angle study of my Nespresso machine. Next are gestures. I do about 25 a day, no use in posting a lot of them I think. The last one is some facial gestures.

    new TNWTD stuff

    More modelled drawings, now with bone studies.
    If you look carefully, you can see the bones in the last two modelled drawings.

    Finished my landscape, but not really satisfied with it.
    Started a mastercopy of van Gogh and another landscape (copy from a painting).

    More modelled drawing

    Did a lot of the same stuff the last two weeks, so I won't post it all. After this it's modelling with black and white. Can't wait ;-)

    Modelled drawing in black and white

    This week a new phase in TNWTD, I now have to use black and white conte for gestures and modelled drawings. Subconsciously I should use black for the dark parts and white for the lighter parts.

    Update

    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)
