I thought I was done but last night I rallied and did another dozen…
Craig Eckersley and Gwen Scott (MUCH prettier than I draw her).
Wanting to try Robert Oster Aussie Brown helped….
Also, finding one person with many images on Sktchy helped…
I learned that from my first round with Guly Gus.
He is the best model — great expressions without donning clown gear.
BTW, KWZ Ink’s Foggy Green is one of my favorite inks of all time.
Ginger Llivina is prettier than I may make her — she also had great expressions.
Robert Oster Melon Tea.
That’s the end of my “legal” week;
I didn’t make it to 100 and that’s okay.
I am better at proportions five days later,
though noses and teeth can be hard.
Drawing 72 peeps did that.
Those of you who hate doing buildings — I get it.
I know the proportions easily because I’ve drawn so very many and built a few.
I wonder if knowing anatomy helps you draw people?
Leaving you with something I may try
if I get another round in me this weekend or beyond,
A GREAT demo on direct watercolor peeps in settings, thanks Laurie Sciretta!
I am working in the Hahnemühle Cappuccino Sketchbook for the rest of the week…
Testing for Hahnemühle means I am likely to finish the challenge.
I am not commenting about the paper until Sunday…
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
