Man, has it really been 12 days since my last post? Here I said I would do this every other day. Clearly my life is off the rails.
Nah, things are fine… but I have been busy. To make up for it, here’s three quick drawings from this summer.
The first was a study of the model with light raking across her back. This was the first drawing that tasked us with working with the shadow shapes of the figure instead of just drawing it’s forms. this took 40 minutes at the time but I think with comfort and confidence this drawing wouldn’t take nearly as much time to produce again. I like this one quite a bit though.
The second image is a head study from the same class. For a drawing with the goal of being more accurate, I like the immediacy of this one. It has a sense of light and structure in the face I wish I could capture every time. Of course I say this firmly believing there are a lot of things wrong with this, or that it could use much more attention. but we had 20 minutes and I haven’t messed with it since. I wish that ear wasn’t so untouched though…
This last thing was actually a scrap piece of paper I used to experiment on things while working on something else. I photographed it because I think the quick foot study I did was in many ways much better than the major drawing I was working on at the time….
Anyway, I feel bad I haven’t kept up. Hopefully I’ll do better from now on. Lets call it a birthday resolution. oh yeah, it’s my birthday btw.
