    Masha's sketchbook

    Hello everyone! I decided to sign up to be able to get my art improved, and see the advice of the masters in the art world.

    I just started learning to sketch with chalk pastels:

    Scull

    I wanted to practice my anatomy by drawing a scull from an image which was found in one of the anatomy practice threads on this forum.
    With this sketch, I can see clearly that, as with most of my attempts, I widen the picture a bit. However, it is a good start for me.

    I've seen some very gorgeous artworks done on tinted paper where the artist would use light/white colours to bring out highlights - so I wanted to try that out myself!

    These sketches are from my head. I had this plan where I'd draw a pose from how I see it, and then find a model to sit the same way so that I could find out where exactly I'm going wrong.

    A few more pages from my sketchbook.
    I'm beginning to do more figure studies - can't say I see the direct benefits of it yet, but it's a good start to be able to draw from my head better.

    Looking nice so far. My sister's name is also Masha, by the way...
    Keep up,

    A bit of night-time sketching the object that is closest…

    More sketchbook pages. I accidentally let the edge of the pages get wet, which warped the sheets...
    Decided to branch out into sketching animals. The birds were especially effective as I had a photo-set of different positions of the same bird.

    I own five cats, and this one likes to sleep on my drawing table, so it's a really handy subject.

    I drew two bent hands - the bigger one with lines was drawn looking at my hand, while the one next to it was drawn from what I pictured a bent hand to be. The difference was astounding.

    My curvy, twisted Venus. I was thinking of Matisse's The Dance painting, the dances with their unusual structure.

    This is a sketch page to develop my next piece I'm planning to do in gouache. I looked up information on the medium; turns out I wasn't working quite right with it. This would be a good chance to try gouache out the way "mother nature intended it to be".

    Looking at this sketch makes me realise just how much more I need to know about anatomy and the structure of bodies.
