As my sight has deteriorated somewhat I found I couldn't see the tones and values well enough, plus it would take me months/years sometimes to get close to finishing one. So, we move on.

 :heeha: Fast forward! I have been looking at Lynn's life drawings and pastel..... Lynn, you are just too good and I just feel I have to give it another go.  :doh:    :faint:   I made a horrid quick sketch of a little girl while up in Antigua, and am having another go starting at more basic life drawings. Here we go.....


This little girl was with her mum selling weavings from their village. Never sat still more than 10 seconds!  :D


Crikey Lynn... this was supposed to be a timed 1 min. warm up... I took three and needed 30 more!  :2funny:   Kudos to you for your accomplishments.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Val,

Those are not bad.  If the girl had her eye's finished, then you would have been happier with the drawing.

I admire you for trying.  I went to one life drawing class and haven't been back.

I do better with charcoal Mea, much quicker and easier to adjust for tone. But, you play with the cards you're dealt!  ;) Not totally disgusted with it since I only had the one pencil (2B) to try and do this with. Yikes was that little fireball hyper!  :D   I hadn't seen a child like that since my son was a toddler!  :2funny:

The gentleman I'm actually reasonably pleased with. Sadly his right arm seems to have stretched a bit, when I drew the lines afterward his wrist was definitely below where it should have been. I'm just going to say that I think he must lift weights more with his left arm...hence the larger muscle mass...  :whistle:   The rest I think is not too bad.  :sweat:
Cheers, Val

I admire you for doing a life drawing Val, I am not sure I ever will be able to do that. and your mans body form is pretty good but he sure has overworked those muscles in the one arm  :2funny:

 :clap: I agree with Win, Val. I, too, admire your desire to do life drawings. That little girl looks really good. I would like to try life drawing at some point too.  :D

Gosh! Val, I don't think I would be able to do half as good as you have with drawing life drawings and I too, admire you for taking on the challenge.  Great to see.

 :thankyou:   Kathy. It might sound strange, but I always seem to feel more excited about my drawing when I'm "on the scene" as it were. That said, photos do make it easier....people can't walk away half way through!  :D
Cheers, Val

Talking of challenges, Val, - live, moving people, a bird, and 2 minutes to sketch a building - you are a winner!  :clap:

Val.... :whistle:A wheel potter I know has an arm like that. He always wins arm wrestling contests in the pub. Strangers are fooled because he's quite a small weedy looking man with his clothes on. (Not that I've actually seen him shirtless...)
