What happened to the month of April?! Oh well, here’s a catch up post of my sketching endeavors over the past month or so:
A sketch to practice drawing/painting water inspired by a photo I took on a trip in Florida.
A sketch to practice drawing trees inspired by a photo I took on a trip to Las Vegas.
A new semester of Sketchbook Skool started! This assignment had us turn random ink blots into something from our imagination.
This assignment had us turn our weekly sketches into a collage.
The second week of klass had us practicing blind contour portrait sketches…very tricky!
More blind contour portraits.
This assignment had us draw a portrait sketch with a big head & a small body. I had so much fun drawing my dog Siqua!
Here’s one of my husband which started as a big head portrait but turned into a regular portrait, oh well. I stuck to the teacher’s color scheme of yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, & cerulean blue (which was my substitute since I didn’t have prussian blue). It was really tough to only use 3 colors & I was panicking about half way through, but I kept pressing on & I’m really happy with the result! I think this is my favorite portrait sketch ever. 🙂
Well, that’s a wrap until next time!
