The top page was a work in progress throughout our the day.
It became obvious instantly that if I want to get better drawing people
I must make this a special focus...and we all know the drill:
The second sketch...
was one of two of my major focus sketches from the day...
(I'll post the other sketch tomorrow...)
drawn lead free during a limited time period before lunch
painted lightly after lunch...and more heavily at home.
(I crosshatched over a myriad of mind & compositional changes at home too!)
I learned that, unlike my sketch above,
I want to try a bit lighter touch with my painting...
highlighting with color my main focal area...leaving the rest to be loose
and airy and less defined...
it is a different approach than I am used to...
and one that intrigues me.
Right now I think want to give it a go...
We'll see what "tomorrow" brings! LOL :)
