A few pages from my moleskine journal ..
Hope everyone is having a fabulous Easter Break!!
I’ve been thinking about drawing my own little babushka doll and when I (finally) got some Pitt Pens I was ready. Of course I loved drawing the little face .. but it was so much fun playing with the watercolour pencils.
I’m still obsessed with drawing eyes … even though I took a drawing class and I know that my proportions aren’t correct … I feel that it’s okay … these are my girls and they’re a bit quirky!!
I can’t believe how quickly this year is going already!! I guess the fact that I’m working three days a week now (instead of just one) means that life is so much busier!
We had the lovely Grace sit for us last week … and we worked on shading. I really struggled with her right arm (as you can see) but with Chris’ guidance I think I sorted it out.
I found The Sketchbook Challenge the other day and when I started thinking about the theme Opposites I thought of the ladies that I’ve been drawing lately and how the two halves of the face could be opposites.
Tonight we focused on features … eyes, nose mouth …
My friend Erin had a birthday recently … and I made her this card …
Last night was my first drawing class with Chris Dewar.
I have a little drawing tin (thanks Erin!) … and my moleskine journal which I love!!
Chris showed us some techniques using gesture marks … I struggled with the concept a little … and although this doesn’t look like the beautifully aged Cecily that sat for us … this is still my interpretation … and I thought I would be brave and share it … (it’s part of the creative journey) …
