Wednesday evening sketches

An unexpected session with Esther. When you’re tired and you feel yourself mainly struggling, it is nice to get some encouragement from fellow artists; they thought these sketches were ok. The 3 on one page were 5 minutes, the next one 15min. I still think there must be a way to make them more interesting – maybe prepare sheets of paper with some water-color beforehand…  Will try that next time.

More practice needed

 

Some of yesterday’s sketches, the first ones 5 minutes, second 10. I try to add more color, within that time. To work on them later without the model I find really difficult, because the moment with her is gone. And then there is the risk you paint the life out of it. This week I’ll spend more time on drawing and painting at home; experiment with different techniques and materials, see how that will work out next Sunday.
