    I wanted to do something different for this post… 100!

    A study of one of my favourite paintings by Renoir (Pierre-Auguste), Les Grandes Baigneuse.

    Took about 8 hours but wanted to stop before I ruined it with overshading. I’ll not post the original here for comparison because I only want my work in my sketchbook, but its worth looking at here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pi...Renoir_021.jpg

    (Sorry for the seam down the centre,
    have an a4 scanner but the original is a3).

    Tonight I've been looking at faces. Its really frustrating because I know its off but everytime I adjusted and corrected something else looked wrong... I just need to keep at it, will try again tomorrow.

    Definitely seeing some improvement with the studies, keep it up!
    For help with faces check out Andres Loomis' "drawing the head and hands" download it here
    He has a really fantastic construction method for faces. Once I learned it I was like "where have you been all my life?!"

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    Wooden mango Thanks for the comments. I already use Loomis for reference but since you pointed it out I should probably go back and read it again (his books have already helped so much)!

    Tonight is my third attempt at looking at faces, I feel this one shows some progress so am happy (for once!) This week was painful but necessary as I really struggle with heads, will take a break for a while now. I'll re-read Loomis drawing the head and hands and then start reading Hogarths drawing the human head.

    Hello Dayle,

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook earlier! Have to admire your level of perseverance; The nudes are quite ok in proportions. Also like the drawing with the woman (I think) walking up the stairs. The details show that you have a high degree of patience.

    Regarding the figure drawing, I can only recommend what 100000 other people are always recommending - Loomis. You can find his books here.

    Hope to see more of your work the soonest.

    All the best,
    Check out my SB and please leave a comment or something

    Dac Thank you too.

    This weekend I've been looking at loomis, not faces but figures. Also did my first ever pastel drawing, only had a few colours though, hence the yellow skin (thought I could blend it on the paper, but didn't work). The original painting is by Jules Lefebvre called truth and is beautiful. I will redraw this painting in pencil one day.

    Today I had the opportunity to do an extended life drawing session, about 5 hours altogether. I made some mistakes as always but didn't want it to end!
    The first was 20 minutes. The second was (about) 1 hour 10 minutes and the last was 1 hour.

    I love that staircase piece. I'd watch the eyes on the heads though. remember they are recessed into the socket not stuck onto the face. but you definitely have the drive to improve so keep at it

    Here is my character of the week entry, probably get no votes but the process is whats important (thats what I tell myself anyway). Was a good opportunity to paint something like this. Giger is a big inspiration.

    I wanted to end the weekend with a head study. Next week, more drawing, what else?!
