Another day another sketch. I created this one on my ipad, playing with ProCreate software. I really love the pencil sketching tools in this program. I didn’t use a reference photo, which is not typical for me. It is purely from my head to my hand with a little experimentation in between.
Thanks again for visiting.
Another daily drawing to share with you. This is my husband, Ken. He has been working on some cabinet enhancements in our kitchen and I snapped a few quick reference photos of him from which to draw.
I liked this pose. It was an unusual view and the lines of his arm and leg and the arch of his back caught my eye.
Along with each daily drawing I am working quite hard these days to complete my latest children’s book. It will be launched in early spring. Stay tuned I will be sharing more on that topic soon.
I always welcome your comments. Thanks again for visiting.
I am still working at creating some sketches each day that are above and beyond my current work projects. I am not really worried about creating a likeness, rather creating a gesture that describes a scene.
Daily sketching is necessary if I want to improve. It is comparable to exercise for my drawing skills. I have to admit that as I work at this more, making it a daily goal, I am working more quickly and accurately. I am also having lots of fun!
Another sketch for today. There are a lot of places here in Florida where chickens run a bit wild. Last spring my husband and I went to a “camp” a few miles south of where we live. We wanted to rent a kayak and paddle around the rivers that pour into the Atlantic ocean. I had my camera with me, as usual, and snapped a lot of photos during the trip. The most entertaining pictures were of the chickens that wandered around the camp. I shot quite a few pictures while waiting for Ken to get the kayak rented, and then again when returned. This particular little hen had a lot of personality and I liked her right away!
One of my goals this year is to simply sketch more. I will try to post some of my sketches as I go along. This is one I did today. Nothing detailed, as I usually get pretty crazy with detail. I wanted to keep this one simple so that it would maintain that look of fun, movement, and spontaneity.
Thanks for visiting!
