Blind Contour and Left Hand Sketches
Blind contour drawings (Drawing without looking) are very good to get the hand eye coordination going. Drawing with your off hand is also a very good excercise. The top are blind contour drawings with my left hand. They force me to really look at what I am drawing.
The second page is a bunch of everything. Quick sketches, blind contours, left hand drawing and just playing with charcoal. I was really surprised at how easily I could draw with my right hand after doing so much with my left. It was great practice.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
