Have to draw something everyday! i just found this very interesting pot in our garden.
love it, love the colors.
I like this drawing, it looks simple but I suspect it is very carefully observed. You actually recorded each inch of this thing didn’t you?
tanx so much…i have been practicing to draw from careful observation, using pen without any pencil sketch. i’m so glad you liked it.
I have been having to draw from photos which feels like cheating since they have already been reduced to 2D. Love drawing from real life and I like to think I can spot it when I see it. Not always but your stuff looks drawn from life. Do you do landscapes or people?
it aint cheating if you draw from photos, i still do that when i paint since i cant paint on the spot. so i would take a picture of a scene that inspires me (actually i still have lots of materials to transfer into painting). i can do a good piece of landscape but im still practicing drawing people from life. i will post some piece about that. yes i do a lot of live drawing in my moleskin.
I don’t think drawing from photos is cheating. When I’m snow-bound in the winter I often use photos, but when the weather is good I try to draw and paint from real life as often as I possibly can. There’s nothing wrong with doing a combination. Just remember that a photo will never capture the REAL color, especially in the shadows, and the camera sometimes distorts objects. But if you know that and compensate for it, you can get a decent sketch or even a decent painting.
