Draw Draw Draw: Feet to the Fore

Ink drawing: My husband's feet.

 

Call me old-fashioned but I draw almost every day and I make no apologies for that. I believe that drawing underpins visual art and that all artists should draw regularly to constantly improve what we do. Sometimes at the end of a long day I don’t really feel like sketching and it’s more out of duty than anything else and this is when feet come in really handy [see what I did there] as they’re never far away and they stay put, so I have quite a few drawings of my feet …… and my husband’s. It’s good practice because they’re not easy to draw so you get some anatomy and perspective practice as well. These ink drawings are in my sketchbook and they’re drawn using the continuous line technique with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens.

 

Ink drawing: my feet.

    I do hands when I’m bored too. Paws?! How do you get a cat to show it’s paws long enough to draw lol?

    Feet are great to draw. I love drawing paws too. Chicken feet are great (if they stay still mind).
