A new medium….

Hey, so the last drawing I did just, in my opinion, lacked the darkness and depth I like so I thought I’d try out a new medium….This being charcoal as I’ve heard good and bad things about it and here are my tools:

As you can see, as usual, I’ve gone with some Derwent pencils as they tend to be really good (I sound like I’m advertising; I’m not, I just know what works for me) and a Winsor & Newton sketch pad. Both of them are awesome and if you don’t have an art store next door to you….like me, They can be get by sites like Amazon. Really worth it though.

Drawing in the park…

So, as promised, after spending most of the day in hospital waiting for and operation tomorrow, I’ve finally gotten around to uploading the drawing I did this morning in the park outside my apartment…..I hope you like it as I’ve used a little bit of artistic license on bits here and there…..Did I mention Alan Shearer was married in this church?

Really taken a fair few liberties with this one but please forgive me….I blame the nippy dog wanting me to throw the ball every 5 minutes.

Shading complex colours

Hey, so it’s New Year’s day and I thought I’d start as I meant to go on with a bit of a practice at shading. For this I decided to start with some basic shapes and then try some more complex body forms like an arm. So here is my notes for this morning. They might be useful for someone looking at shaded areas, mid-tones and light. I drew this in pencil simply because I couldn’t find my pen but it’s all cool.
