We are in the middle of another long charcoal study so I am posting last week's construction drawing. This drawing and this week's drawing was a bit of a challenge. It is a new way of thinking for me. As I have in many things, I struggle a bit at the beginning. If I was able to nail it, I suppose I wouldn't need to go to school! I didn't post this week's drawing as the instructor did a lot of drawing on it to show me how to work it. It was very helpful. The foot above was a rather large cast and I had a rather challenging angle. Challenge is good but can be frustrating.
I now have a room to draw in and am loving it. Today, after taking my dog three blocks to the dog park, I walked into town and sketched at a cafe for an hour and then stopped in at the local food co-op to pick up a few things. Life is good!
This is a bit of a short post. I should have a bit more to say in the next one.
Until next week...
Good job with the foot! I appreciate feet and their complexity because of a foot injury I had a few years ago. I'm sure they're really hard to draw too. (Especially given the toe-on angle that you got....the toes look great)
Thanks for the drawing encouragement. It's true that I worked a long time on learning to write and have never worked on or been given instruction in how to draw.
I'm so glad you're sharing your learning process with us!
