To understand foreshortened poses, I have to understand the basic foundation of perspective. Perspective is one of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around. That means drawing boxes. Once I learn to draw these things freehand with a certain level of accuracy, perhaps I can tackle figures and other things much more accurately.
As always, it isn't a matter of drawing what I see, its learning to replace what I think I see with what is really there.
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
