So I’ve just come back from this week’s art lesson where I’ve been learning about the ink wash technique which looks fantastic and I really need to research it more…but here you go, here’s my first attempt:
So all my life I’ve been a massive Only Fools and Horses fan and after visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in town today and then looking at some Andrew Gormley sculptures as well as attending the Chinese New Year celebrations, I thought I’d see if I could draw the star of Only Fools, Del Boy himself, David Jason to commemorate his 79th birthday….so here it is:
Hey, so my old mum is a huge fan of Neil Sedaka and before my operation I saw his CD in Winchester and promised her if it was still there, I’d buy it…I did and, of course, I did a quick sketch of the fella behind the music to maybe the best scene in the first Deadpool movie…
So I’ve just finished my Tony Stark project but saw a most excellent tutorial on drawing Thor on black card but felt I’d like to try my own example and, well, here you go….
So whilst I took a break from my main Tony Stark project (which is done by the way), I thought I’d have a go at an iconic photo of Muhammad Ali in Pencil…..and a bit of charcoal so here is the greatest himself. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee…..
So I’ve just started an evening art course and I’ve never used chalk to draw before and I was very impressed by my first go so I’ve included it in my blog today…. and here it is:
Hey, so further adventures in drawing….well, I’m stuck in bed, I have a couple of books but I thought I’d look at some web imagery and tutorials and as mentioned before, I am a bit of a wrestling fan….so I’ve drawn one of the greats in the wwe…John Cena and…..here he is…
Hey, so I’m in bed thinking of what to sketch, then I notice my Michael Jackson’s Bad LP (yes, I am a bit of a hipster, I have 9 of my favourite LP’s on the wall with a record player next to my guitar….which I can play…..so-so….anyhow, I digress, I took my sketch pad out and thought I’d have a go at drawing the artwork for the Bad front cover)….Bare in mind this is only a sketch, but boy, it’s tricky as Michael Jackson was changing his look every five minutes in this era but anyhow, here’s what it looks like so far….definitely needs a lot of work though:
It’s messy isn’t it?….But when you get past that, it is a lovely medium for drawing with. I spent an hour or so looking at some tutorials and then decided to give it a go myself so here are my first efforts with charcoal. 1. an eye and 2. My quick attempt at the Lincoln statue in Washington DC. It really can get very dark, which is great…..
