I did two drawings during class yesterday. After about 5 minutes, I had this:
Today's drawing was tough because the model moved a lot. Previous to this, our models have stayed very still. It was hard to get an accurate portrait, but the teacher told me to lighten up. He told me to worry less about it being accurate and more about getting a pleasing picture. So, for my second drawing, I decided to approach it a bit differently.
After about five minutes:
I need to let go. Stop holding on to the rules and the "rights" and the "wrongs" and just draw. The second picture is less accurate as a portrait, but I think it's more pleasing as a picture.
Thanks for stopping by!
