Saturday, June 16, 2007 - Sketches



I intended to work more on the Cool Gators - but didn't. Got my Michael R. Britton (http://www.artacademy.com/) printouts and worked on some of his lessons on sketching portraits.

1 = foreshorted and lying down












2 = model with a long face and leaning in towards us (I obviously need to work on the eyes!)




















3 = scowling and hand on head



All of these done with graphite on heavy Strathmore drawing paper. But I need to expand a bit and use something other than graphite, I think - maybe try out my new pastel pencils and other things for fun and some color.

Your drawings have such expression in the lines. Keep it up. The foreshortened one is so good! see you in a week.
