Due to the lock-down (Coronavirus you might have missed it?) Some sketches from reference photos (purchased and copyright free) of Jenni with; what we Brits call a Rugby Ball; & Americans call it a football - but they don't kick it that much!! Anyway, when you have an artistic block - or want to try something different go for a couple of different coloured biros (stedler) and a Rotring drawing pen and scribble on some of the oddles of surplus dot-matrix computer printing paper you have left over from the 90's.










Goodbye from Jenni!

So tonight was my first life drawing since the Chrimbo break and we had the treat of one of the best models available - Beth. I managed quiet a few pencill seketches and finished up with a 25 minute sitting pose and 35 min laying pose, These were done in pencil, watercolour and pen on very large paper (A3+++) which I had cut up myself.

Tonight was obviously polling night for the election and so it was really difficult to park. That kind of stress you really don't need when going into a life drawing session. So I wasn't suprised it took me a while to warm up.


Tinight's model was Martina Chereli. The third and last - pencil sketch I was pleased with - which is the first to show.

So here are some sketches of Carolyne I have done mainly using pencil instead of my normal preferred method of pen. Normally I like pen because the permanence of it means that I concentrate a lot more before my hand touches the paper. It is like the extra adrenaline of avoiding a solid mistake helps the hand-eye co-ordination. Lately though I have had a wanting to go back to pencil so that I can go more for accuracy rather than spontaneity.
