Broken

Everything in life seems broken, so it’s fitting that my online art class has picked this as one of it’s topics in it’s collections and treasures theme.

using reference photographs from Museum collections and my wifes old ted.

Back to life

Found a great weekly life drawing session, run by 2 local artists.

They provide the models and tea and we get 2 hours of life drawing, I had forgotten just how exhausting  the concentration is.

Hope to make this a regular thing next year, you can’t beat drawing from life and I need to get better at it.

 

Daily sketch

Started this year with a little pledge to sketch a face everyday, things started well but finding a few hours  each day to sketch is not that easy, still I have  started to gather a book full of faces and any practice has got to be good practice, even if its not everyday.

 

Graphite

I have been going to have a go at Graphite drawing for some time .

Had this picture in my head ever since I saw it back in 2007, a really tremendous self-portrait Titled Joyride by Jake (Woodsac) on Deviant Art, from what I can see he has moved on  now, hope this credit is enough for the ref picture.

It sort of fits my art class project of a view through the window.
