My drawing and painting life
Sometimes I love an assignment so much I keep doing them. We get a lot of drawing assignments as part of the “Y is for Yellow” class hosted by Carla Sonheim. A lesson every fortnight, organized by the letters of the alphabet. For the G lesson – we’re drawing ‘gaggles of girls’. Small sets of drawings from reference photos. The idea was to try starting with the head and hair first – and start with the eyes. I find I can’t draw a proper face starting with the eyes. So after doing that once, I stuck with drawing the head shape first. I tried different sources (online, magazines) and different approaches – more stylized or less. Here’s one of the first. Some girls look better than others. I love how these are more stylized.
I can’t just draw females. Here’s a set with males and females.
These were almost all glamour girls. I lost track of time and made them a lot more detailed.
Can you tell I start at the top right, work from right to left- and ended at the bottom left? Something I started doing to not smudge too much. I draw with my left hand, that’s why.
I’m allowing myself to diverge from my theme. Did you notice?
