A month ago I bought myself a tablet for my birthday.
Today I try and draw something for my sister on her birthday.
Suddenly I forget everything I know about painting.
Digital Painting - The Danger of Painting Silhouettes (And Speed-Painting)
Style will come later.
Tonal observation practice, with paint!
This study was done in just a few hours. I forgot how much I enjoy paint. And how much it frustrates me.
Not a bad way to start the new term. (The final term! First year is whizzing by.)
Edit: welp, what a terrible quality photo. It’s from my phone, like most of my posts are, but it was dark and I tried to adjust with an app and, yeah.
Throwback to about month ago, a 20 minute pose I got carried away with. Ignore those legs. Charcoal on a big piece of paper (the majority of my drawings are on A1 nowadays, it used to be A0) is too fun.
It’s assessment period and in the down time I’m working on a short stop motion film.
Unrelated, here’s a little doodle; Someone left a faint gesture sketch on some paper hanging about so I decided to do something with it.
Finishing up work for deadlines means I need to get around to unrolling all my life drawings and uploading them. Bad habits die hard.
New term, new year, lets go! I might even post more on the blog.
Group work? That turned out to actually be really fun?
Today’s life drawing (chalk and charcoal!) is a result of the work between myself and five fellow students and friends. Dare I say I love it.
Today is also the last life drawing session of the first term! Crazy. Time flies, right?
