Small steps toward better perspective. Still trying to improve it.

charcoal of model, David

I like using charcoal so I can focus more on light and shadow. I wish it looked more like David though. I’ll work it more before spraying fixer. It always gets a little smudge on the way home.

Thinking about Paris. I had a chance to do a quick minute sketch while roaming the Rodin gardens. Here’s my angle.

Model in class. Trying to get both the form and shadows. It’s tougher for me to see detail with glasses instead of my contact lenses. I also appreciate a photo as a model to which I can get really close.



The model permitted me to photograph her, so I did. This sketch is after taking a photo and working from a monotone version.

Perhaps I can work more on the tones next week.

I haven’t posted some of the abstract color work I did in July. I don’t thing is was as good as my work last year. But I should nonetheless post it for my record.

Artworks - Displaying what I’m working on

Wednesday 1st August 2018

I’ve been studying drawing and painting for the past few years. A retirement option to which I need to devote more time. I want to track my progress, but I’ve let some time pass, so now I need to catch up and post my work that I can review and look at from time to time.
