Very quick sketch made with Pilot Razor Point pen and colored with my new Pilot Color Eno 0.7 mm mechanical pencils. Colors are light but like the blending results. Can now add color to my sketching in the wild while avoiding taking water and precious colored pencils. (8.5″ x 11″)
Small drawing in graphic pencil.
Two day sketch of a California coast live oak and surroundings while spending weekend at the Farmhouse at the La Purisima Golf Course in the Santa Ynez Valley California.
Sketched in Procreate 4 on iPad app with Apple Pencil while watching ‘The Quatermass Xperiment’ starring Brian Donlevy. (1955)
It was suggested that I partake in a life drawing class to loosen up my sketching. Unable to attend a class at this time I found some online life drawing videos. (Croquis Cafe) Today was my very first experience with figure drawing. Below is the progression of my drawings. (Did not pause any of the poses.) I surprised myself with the last sketch of the five minute pose. I know this is not as educational as the real thing but it will have to do for now. It is said that a knowledge of human anatomy is helpful. The only anatomies I am familiar with are those of annelids, amphibians, fish, birds and felines which I studied in high school, uni and work. 🙃
Sketch of imaginary still life while listening to an hour of Fibber McGee and Molly from 1935. The days of real humor. (8.5×11 inch)
Practice graphite sketch. Thought I should try my hand at sketching before my first sketching session in the wild.
