I had another great session of life drawing at The Haining with model Jacque on Tuesday.
Had a really lovely life drawing session on Tuesday, with Topaz modelling. I felt I hadn’t warmed up enough, but I relaxed over the course of the evening and in the end managed to do some nice drawings.
Yesterday I sketched Elsa as she chewed on a toy. Occasionally she’d bring it over to me and dump it at my feet before retreating across the room to stare at me. She usually wore an accusing look at this point – “What, you haven’t thrown it yet?”
I’m a bit unsure about my painting below; it’s quite wonky but it was fun to play with colour. Usually I stick to sketches, but the Sketch app on the iPad Pro is amazingly versatile and I’m looking forward to trying more painting on the go.
I’ve been referencing horses for a project, so I’ve spent some time drawing them in order to figure out how they work. Using Line of Action I did some quick gestures, and then I searched for various images through Google to sketch in more detail.
The hooves are particularly hard to draw, especially when they’re hidden in long grass as was the case in most of the photographs …
