11/10 – A favorite mug

November 11, 2007

This mug is part of a set of four mugs that I liked so much I bought them as photography subjects. They are quickly becoming sketch/watercolor props as well. 🙂

11/6 – Hand on a Ground

November 6, 2007

First I had to “set a ground” which is smearing a graphite stick all over the page and rubbing it down with a paper towel. Then I drew my hand through a picture plane and copied the major parts of that drawing onto the ground. Then I re-posed my hand as I did in the picture plane, but without using the picture plane, and fine-tuned my drawing. I liked the idea to half-close my eyes to see the shadow and light in the image better, it really did work. Lastly, I lightened the areas around my hand that weren’t in shadow to make it pop from the image of my hand.

At Norm’s 24-hour restaurant.

Glass with lemon

They have a mini-Sunday. Just the perfect size. It didn’t last long enough for a sketch. 🙂

11/4 – Crossed foot

November 4, 2007

Was at a conference all day today. The lights were continually dimmed and turned on for presentations of artist’s slide shows. This sketch of my crossed foot took me three lightings to complete.

11/3 – Chair on Stage

November 4, 2007

I went to a conference and sketched this chair on the stage. I’m having trouble with proportions. I start on the left and by the time I get to the right I’m out of whack. So I gave it another try.

11/2 – Drawing My Hand on Plastic Picture Plane

November 2, 2007

My hand is behind a piece of clear plastic as I draw this using an erasable marker pen with one eyed closed. Closing the eye helps to reduce my vision to 2-D.
