I woke up this morning to find a note that Bob and Morgan were at the beach… so I jumped out of bed and joined them…. with sketching stuff in tow of course. It looked like rain but I brought my watercolors and my journals anyway.
I have a few sketches from this morning in different books but thought I’d share this one. Morgan wanted me to sketch her with her foot buried in the sand. I was going to do it in the canson book, but I had a sketch of a seagull drying in that one.
Can you see improvement in my figure drawing… drawing the nudes is really paying off. My sister has a book with info on draping and laying fabrics. Looking forward to that too.
Bob says the face is too grown up. Yep, I can see that I have the features a little too far apart. Here’s a modified face in photoshop. Can you see the difference and how this one looks more adolescent?
I’d started to remove the lines but figured they would help you to see the changes I made. I pulled the nose and mouth up closer to the eyes.. then the lips up a little more and shrunk them slightly.
Give that a try next time you are drawing a youngster.
Have a great day.. oh and yes.. no prompt today!
