Day 5 of the Sktchy 30 faces in 30 days. Pen drawing with the tutor Guillaume Piot. Really enjoying this challenge and trying different media for portraits.
Day 4 of the 30 faces in 30 days challenge with Justin Maas. Graphite and white charcoal on toned paper.
Day three of 30 faces in 30 days. George Cwirko Godycki drew this portrait in pen using a selection of nib thicknesses and a brush dipped in ink. I used two Sailor fude fountain pens, one with black and one with grey ink plus a little water soluble ink and a wet finger!
The second day of the 30 faces in 30 days challenge. Today’s tutor Juan Perednik used graphite powder and a very soft pencil. I ground up some charcoal sticks and used a charcoal pencil for this unusual angle.
I started the new year with the Sktchy 30 faces /30 days challenge. The first tutorial with Margarita Aasman used pan and wash on grey toned paper.
Our grandsons Emmet and Cillian asked me if they could have a painting of Corfe Castle station for their bedroom so I added this special visitor to the Swanage Railway. Happy to say the boys love it.
Ginny bought me a book about fashion illustration for Christmas. It’s fascinating to see a different approach to drawing figures that concentrates on clothing and accessories. Here are a couple of the exercises from the book that starts with shoes and bags.
Self portrait from a photo taken by Barry at the art society party.m Thanks Barry. I was going to add some pen but I am having second thoughts. Should I add pen or not?
Out with Bournemouth and Poole urban sketchers at the Russel Cotes museum this morning. We had a good turnout with over a dozen sketchers. The museum was very festive with carols played on the piano and staff dressed in Victorian costumes. Watercolour isn’t allowed in the museum so I used a pen and water brush to create some tone on one and pencil on another.
Gary the clown posed for us in our portrait session at Broadstone Art Society this morning. He was a star model and hardly moved a muscle for the whole session. Well done Gary.
