Personal Notes

I am going to stick with this technique which I am busy with, it feels it is working. I like the linework and would use thinner lines and lighter lines. I am currently using a B4 to draw the lines. As soon as I draw my own sketches and not working from photostats I will be able to use a lot of different pencils.

Personal Notes

What I did was I made a photostat of an existing sketch and I colored it in. I used lines to do so, this gives me an exercise to practice the lines in the sketch. I found it very helpful to practice the style that I am working on.

Study 7 P3- Metal Shapes

Title: Study 7 P3- Metal Shapes

Style: Realism
Art Subject: Realism
Place of Origin: Pretoria, South Africa


Personal Notes

I did not work for a few days, I watched movies, and look at the news. I thought of doing shapes and I always like metal, what I mean by that is the material. It is very forgiving and when you make mistakes when you work with the metal it is easy to correct it. So that is the main reason why I like metal. I draw a few sketches to get a feeling of how it can look like by using a pencil. I made use of shadings to get curve shapes.
