Tag: drawing practice
I did a little figure drawing practice yesterday during a work call and tried out some new Derwent Graphitint watercolors. Nice change from my super-bright Inktense kits.
Live at Vienne
I’ve been slowly reading through the autobiography of Miles Davis and needed a subject for a sketch, so this seemed to fit. Just a simple pencil drawing from the album cover from Live at Vienne.
A quick and heavy-handed sketch of the hands of my wife and me on our wedding day. Saw this in a photo when I was looking through shots ahead of our recent anniversary and thought it would be a good exercise. Used 2B and 6B pencils in a Moleskin sketchbook for this drawing. Here is…
Coloring on the table
Drawing of my son sitting on top of our table coloring one of those giant coloring pages. Just a quick pencil sketch in my sketchbook.
Energy (figure #70)
The trampoline is good for a few things, namely getting energy out of the kids and getting some funny pics along the way. I was going to do this with all brush pens, which I still will, but ended up using my fine pen instead.
Slightly amused (figure #69)
Keeping the Zoom portrait series going with a coworker looking slightly amused at something that was said. This one is a larger format (A4) than previous portraits (A5) mostly because I ordered the wrong size replacement. The extra space was pretty nice to work with though so happy accident I think.
Self-portrait (figure #68)
Another one for the Zoom series, but this one is me. I don’t do self-portraits often enough as I always find them oddly enjoyable but don’t tend to like the thought of staring at myself so I tend to not do them. They are great practice though and I should do more of them.
Feet top and bottom (figure #67)
This was a fun little sketch I did in between working on a watercolor with the kids next to me. I like the way the folds on the foot turned out.
Two hands (figure #66)
This is from a photo I took of my son rolling around and playing one day. I liked the angles of the shot and thought it would be good to try for practice.
Red panda (figure #65)
Breaking the mold here of human-only subjects. A little watercolor of one on my daughter’s favorite animals, from a figure she has. She wanted me to do this one for her friend back in the states.
