Illustration Friday-Resolve

This year I resolve to draw more! I’ve spent lots of time focused on color and painting, but I need to get my chops back. I’m looking forward to working with live models, pencil and paper. There is much to be said for the craft of drawing what you see. Most of my work these days has been ‘constructionist’ type drawing. That’s great and all and it does have its place. However, seeing the shapes and forms amidst the lights and darks puts one out on an artistic tightrope. The end result is always vibrant and full of life. It is the process that I miss so much and need to get back to.

  1. Tom just bought me more drawing materials so I can get into drawing. I’m relearning the spontaneity of drawing without project deadlines- at least until I get back into my studio classes. Like your drawing because it’s not covered with excessive shadows and your use of line creates the illusion of movement of her head and hair. Nice!
