Dave, a fellow member of the CLMC enquired whether I had a good week – “Great!”, I replied. He then inquired if I had done any drawing, like responding to a priest who had inquired after my bible studies I ashamedly responded “erm… No.”.
For some reason I my eye was not there. The technique was not improving but instead I was standing still.
That kind of really set the tone of the session because as the outcomes clearly illustrate I have reached a plateau – but not only that I struggled with the session. For some reason I my eye was not there. The technique was not improving but instead I was standing still.
I am keeping this post short because a lot of what I will be saying has already been said. The outcomes are simple:
- Draw more
- Draw anything
- Focus on tone and shading
I enjoyed this pose because of the sculptural element – but I wasted the anatomical elements of it. It was a bad day!
Awful, choppy drawing (above). Line is far too heavy. Scratched to hell.
This example is a little better – but this is a drawing I rescued. It was a fight from start to finish. Such a great pose as well – wasted!
Quite like the dynamism of this colour pencil exercise I like to do with these quick poses. But – proportions are all over the place. Just could not hit it today!
