Bits And Pieces

05 warrior bits

It’s tempting to try and do a complete drawing during the weekly Life Drawing sessions as I use so many of these sketches to develop into monotypes and mixed media pieces. But I also want to use the time to practice my craft and sometimes I focus on different parts of the model rather than the whole body. I’ve always found it hard to get a good portrait likeness with this particular model, but this one is quite reasonable. It’s always good to practice hands and feet too. Drawn in Faber Castell Pitt pens directly into a large Somerset sketchbook, 30cms square. I don’t use pencil to sketch it out first – I like to live dangerously 🙂

    Wow, these are great! I always have a terrible time with profiles, hands and feet.

    The hands are wonderful, full of strength.

    Nice hands and feet. Like I always say, “Get the hands and feet right and everything else just falls into place.”

    You didn’t sketch? Wow, that makes it all the more impressive. I love the hands.

      I never sketch. I don’t particularly like pencil. I always draw directly with pen or dip pen and ink. Thanks 🙂
