My intended "quick sketches" are turning out to take much longer to do, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the process, whether it's a quick lunch time sketch with some colour added in the evening, a relaxing evening sketch, a sneaky sketch during art class or an early Sunday morning warm up sketch before spending the rest of the day painting.
2/11/2012 ~ AEDM Day 2: Basic Tools
Some of my very basic brushes (some of them are simple pastry brushes from the supermarket) and my favourite green water jar.
3/11/2012 ~ AEDM Day 3: The Artist
M painting teacher at work. Unfortunately, it doesn't look anything like him. I'm still far away from getting a real likeness when trying to sketch people. But the first step is to practise sketching people at all - and getting quicker at it. Why can't people just stand still?
4/11/2012 ~ AEDM Day 4: A Pocket Full of Pink
I received a pocketful of Pink the other day, including these lovely buttons. Just perfect for sketching on a Sunday morning.
And the Ginkgo sketch from Day 1 got a bit of colour too:
Have a wonderful, creative Sunday!
Love the subtle colours on the brushes. It probably only took you a short time but I would have spent a week trying to paint that, and still wouldn't have got close. Good proportions on the artist - we don't know what he looks like, so it looks fine to us!ReplyDelete
Nice buttons, which reminds me... ;o)
I bet your teacher is thrilled you painted him...the brushes painting is wonderful....you are clever:)ReplyDelete
The Artist has such a beautiful essence of focussed relaxation.ReplyDelete
