I have a LOT of work on at the moment and I kind of have to stay as sharp as I can, no point rolling out of bed, all bleary-eyed and stumbling into the studio to begin working on my commissioned stuff if I’m all tired and rusty.
After a quick cup of coffee this morning I sat down and doodled these, approx. 25 mins of sketching. It’s evident that after I sketched the first page, I was substantially more ‘warmed up’, the second page (with the birds) shows much more confident and more honed lines.
Wildlife books provide great reference for this kind of thing…
btw, I used my new Bosto Kingtee to draw these, (see earlier post for a video demo)
I rekindled an old love last night. I used to draw ballerinas all the time in my 20’s, something about the grace of the ladies and the challenge of the lines. I polished off 8 of these pages in an hour. I’ll definately be doing more, great practise!
