Sketches on the train in April I



A new month, with new sketches!

Also my little sketch quotes start from today.

"THE HUMAN FACE IS VULNERABLE, IF YOU DON'T KILL IT, IT WILL SURVIVE BUT SOMETIMES WE STROKE IT TO DEATH!"

I'm so relieved to read your write up about all the sketches you did. I can't stop drawing portraits, its one a day at the moment. I have discovered charcoal and pastel pencils. I still have a long way to go but feel I'm improving each time.

Thanks "Painting 4 living"! Great drawings coming up on your site-always take note of the overall structure of the face-it will really help you to improve faster! Wish you the best!

Rohit, thanks, I am happy you see the truth in the quote!

Deo- Line does speak, I believe in that!

Hi Adebanji, thanks for yr reply. What do you mean by the overall sructure? Do you mean face shape or the features. I was advised I was focusing too much on detail and needed to loosen up a bit so I started to do some charcoal sketches which seems to help. Cld I also ask when you sketch do you start with the head / face shape first or the features (eyes for example). The advice in books is always the shape and then I was watching some street artists and they seem to do the eyes first.

Thanks Painting 4 Living- I'll email you with a link to a site of a good old artist teacher called Fred Fixler, or you can check it on http://www.fredfixler.com/-go under the link Cave 22 and have a feast on the handouts available and you'll be basking in all the knowledge you need! He has said everything possible on structure that I could explain. Hope it helps.
