More experiments in my sketchbook as I work my way through Drawing Lab by Carla Sonheim. I have added a link to Carla's website so you can look at some of her work.
And now for something completely different......
I have moved on into the Old Masters section of the book, here are my 'dogs' inspired by the works of Picasso. I have to say the strange drawings were much improved with colour, they developed a character and I am starting to like them now.
One page I coloured with my Inktense (water soluble) Pencils. These have lovely vibrant colours and also come in solid stick form. The second was coloured with my Sennelier Oil Pastels. These are a first for me, I had tried oil pastels at college but found them smelly and scratchy. The Sennelier are so smooth and blend beautifully.
and finally, just to prove I didn't wimp out of figure drawing!
and if you now think.....'why does she keep on about being afraid to draw?' I really didn't think I could do this (honest).
