sketches (2)

So, I’m having a go at drawing as part of my ‘create‘ theme. A couple of people mentioned that they got started by finding stuff they like and copying it.

Splendid idea. I found this picture on Instagram, by the fantastic New York-based photographer, @samhorine.

Part of me is reluctant to share as it’s a first attempt, but another part reckons that if I keep sharing my progress, I’m more likely to carry on!

As you can tell, I marked out the original into a grid to see if that helped with the composition. It seemed to help a bit!

These may turn into a semi-regular series on here…

Sketches (1)

As part of my ‘create’ theme, I’ve made a head start. Noodling with doodles on post-it notes, presented as a baseline to measure progress.

They’re very simple, but I’ve been deliberately keeping them so. Quick drawings, done regularly. Copied in some cases (the snowman) and based on photos (the building).

I’ve since picked up a sketchbook to work in, and will be going through some online tutorials over the next few weeks.
