I'm taking a new Sketchbook Skool klass called A Drawing A Day with Veronica Lawlor. Not that I needed encouragement to draw every day; I do that anyway. But I love new klasses and this one is proving to be fun. It also coincides with a Drawing A Day with Prompts challenge. So this top drawing of my new boots in leggings for the cold in Oregon, where we went for the holidays was drawn in a motel on our way home. The prompt was "Rest".
Also for the klass, not for the prompt, was to use a thick and a thin line showing the front items on the plate stronger in the foreground and the thinner lines in the distance. I like how this worked.
The lemon on the right is the first lemon I picked off the tree I planted this past summer.
I continue to draw portraits on Sktchy (app on my iPhone). I love drawing Meral. She has a very soulful face and I have drawn her numerous times now. These two are my latest. They are also my new found love of Copic Markers. One of our Klassmates in SBS made a video at my request showing us how she used them for blending colors for skin tones. I am ecstatic to learn how to do this.
This third portrait was at the request of my youngest grand child, Allie, who paints her face herself.
This was my first use of Copic markers for a dark skinned fellow. I am so pleased with the results and so was he!
I continue to draw our instructors and facuty. Top Danny Gregory one of the two founders of SBS, and bottom, Morgan Green school Dean.
Top is Susan Colon another administrator and bottom is Veronica Lawlor.
This guy got drawn at a Starbucks and I used him for the prompt "Outfit".
Here's the same guy, for an assignment for thick and thin lines again, (before I added color to his clothing)
And several women at the coffee house on the same day.
One last quick lesson with thick and thin lines called sensuous lines that our eye follows in curves of the fallen cord.
I drew a lot more this week, but haven't posted them all. Might add some more later in a day or two or save them for next blog post.
Thanks for coming by. It's good to be home. I hope you were able to enjoy the holidays. We got to experience some intense weather unlike anything we are used to where we live: rain, sleet, hail and snow. Made for an interesting and very pretty at times ride home.
Happy New Year and wishing you a Creative week.
