Getting Distracted by Drawing

Greetings Comrades.

I’ve figured out how to draw figures. So I’ve been getting too distracted by that to write/record any poetry as of yet. I have started an epic poem, ‘The Afterworld.’ I’ve done 2 pages of it but with drawing seeming more exciting at that moment now that I’ve had that eureka moment I haven’t got round to continuing it. 285 more words

Open Session: ...Life ...Ashleigh

New model last night. Worked in black and white charcoal pencil.

Pleased with the result – good proportions and composition, but hand still needs work. Yuri did say my effort was the basis for a good drawing, but needed to be finished. 183 more words

While I have enlarged my original vision for this work and have added two more figures, I am also searching for a title to encompass larger feelings as well. 23 more words

A fun-loving girl & A quiet girl

       One of the reason I like drawing is because I enjoy the process of letting my objects gradually reveal themselves by adding certain details on paper — first simple lines for rough draft, and then the coloring to create lights and shades. 91 more words
