As it is lockdown still and no life drawing sessions I decided to do some anatomical studies. Decided to copy a drawing by Raphael - went straight in with the ink via dip-pen and ended up with the following:




Never is that good when you try to copy some one else's style - but a practice is ok. So for the next three studies I used some copywrite-free photos from some DVDs I purchased a while back. This is a study of Trisha from 3 Angles. Again Dip-pen & ink free-hand sketches followed by the addition of watercolour. The surface is wallpaper liner which I purchased for about 50p a roll in a charity shop.

So we are in Lock-down with no chance of getting to Life drawing sessions. So I thought that I would try to develop an area I have rarely attempted before - Children's features. Starting a little rough I developed these sketches from a reference photo book which covers babies faces to young adults. Over the past couple of days I used pen dip pen and/or a fountain pen with ink washes. I went straight in with the pen - without using pencil first. I have uploaded some of the results, starting from the most recent to some of the earliest ones done - so development can be seen.

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.
