A Sketch a day – Days 65- 69

Day 65. An Indian lady.
I’m improving in some areas, this wasn’t one.
I see lots of ways to improve the figure but this is a warts and all year of sketching, so it’s included.
Faber-Castell pencils and a little water added.  Everything I do with equipment is an experiment for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 66.  Hand holding mug from Dr.Betty Edwards ‘Using the right side of the brain’ book.

HB pencil was used.

 
Day 67.  Did I say this is a ‘wart’s day’?  Sitting at my DDs I decided to sketch her hanging kitchen pans.  Gee it was so tricky.  The top one was first but when finished my eyes saw an optical illusion -the round metal holder was back to front – ie, the pans should have looked to be   hung in the back.  The second try is also odd.  But that was it for the day.  I’m hoping to have a third shot at it when we next visit.

Day 68.  Here’s an upside down sketch of Igor Stravinsky first by Pablo Picasso and then by me.
The actual picture from the book is to the right.  The fingers were the hardest to do.
2b pencil used for Igor. It tends to fade away.  since these earlier days, I’ve been overdrawing the lines with a black pen.  The original came from Betty Edwards book.

  1. You are challenging yourself in so many ways, with equipment, tools, material, angles… Keep up the good work, and there will not be a single wart anywhere!

    • Now wouldn’t that be wonderful. :-))

  2. You are doing so well Maureen…I see no warts lol 🙂 x

  3. Warts? I hardly think so! I’d be thrilled if I could draw half as well.

    • Oh, you’re good for the self esteem MA. but I still need a heck of a lot more practise.

  4. What a variety. I quite like the Indian lady, actually. Each drawing has a different lesson, doesn’t it. Upside down, as you drew it upside down from you, right?

    • Yes Susan, the picture is generally upside down for sketching. I added the original page, turned around, so anyone can see the difference between that and mine. The idea is to ‘see’ instead of ‘expect’ what to see.
