From the sketch book
|Light Shine - Graphite drawing|
This is a graphite drawing I did from a photograph. I try to show the shapes created by the light source shining on the surface of the subject. I used stronger lines than usual as an exercise in making the lines look stronger.
I used to get picked on in art class as not being confident with my lines. They would look like a bunch of little lines to make one line (which is fine too). According to some, it looked as if I was not sure of myself, although this was not the case. But you know those "superficial" people I referred to in the previous post...I had a few as art instructors in my teens. However, there is such a thing as a 'line drawing' and this is different than a 'sketch'. A sketch is loose and free-like, where a line drawing is more precise and, well, "linear". The above drawing is part line drawing and partly showing tones or shades.
Anyhow, I just wanted to share some of my drawings, sketches and ink drawings in my sketchbook.
Here is another one;
|Sepia ink sketch - River Otter|
It just so happens that we live on the "Big Otter Creek" in South Western Ontario, although, sadly, the River Otters died out years ago.
