Sometimes life gets in the way of the things that we like to do. I started with my self portrait and then really had the drawing bug. I have been trying to figure out what 'style' I wanted to learn. Do I want to draw things that look realistic - somewhere I have a drawing of a sandwich that makes me hungry. Do I want to draw cartoons? Do I want to emulate the person that first inspired me Suzanne Cabrera http://www.suzannebuchanan.blogspot.com/ or do I want to draw caricatures? I still haven't decided, but I have atleast been drawing. Here are some of the things that I tote around in my sketchbook...
I drew this when I took my son to see Despereaux in the theater...it was pretty dark, but I think it is okay...I could be wrong.
Strangely enough - I really like drawing feet...is that strange?
Caricature practice - I now find myself looking at everything and everyone trying to figure out the shape their head, eyes, mouth and nose would take in a caricature.
Of all the things that I have drawn so far...I HATE EYES!!!
Compared to some of the extreme talent that I have seen on the blogs I follow (some listed on this blog) - this is amateur, but I really like it.
I think that this one is crap...enough said
