New Faces in Color Pencil




I took the pencils to a workshop and did some sketches and had so much fun I went home and drew this random model from a magazine... with a lot of very major changes to a lot of her. I guess I'm feeling a little bit more feminine lately. Its coming out in my drawings.

Back to Crayola











I found some old Crayola sketches from quick study workshops in February and early March and I decided to go back to the basics. The thing about Crayons is that it loosens me up. The tip gets blunt quickly so I focus on gesture to make my drawing read. I can also get soft and hard lines, tone and massing quite quickly without worrying about being too neat. I took my Crayons to a workshop last Sunday and I re-realized all this all over again. So much fun.

Civic Center


It was so nice today, and after a LOOOOOONG work week I threw my watercolors and gouache in my bag and went to draw in the park. Oh the fun I had. Oh the beautiful day. Oh the watercolors! I wasn't giong to use line so I approached the painting by massing in the shadows but the sun moved (obviously) and I opted to skip the painting and turn it into a line drawing. Not a bad combination. Oh the watercolor!

Last week's workshops sans Crayons
















So I diched the Crayola for a week and went back to pen and some pastels. These are some Bill Sanchez workshop drawings and the ones with the incredible fashion are from the Metamorphica Workshop.
