My drawing and painting life

10 days of drawing and some painting

Faces collage 2 april 16 2019

Collage of some of the daily drawings of April

Sharing some of my drawings and paintings of my hundred day project. Like I wrote earlier, I am not very good at doing the same thing all the time. I’m good at daily practice. It’s the best way to create a lot and find something nice among the many.

I love doing quick drawings – and most of the times that is what I think will happen. Some days when I have only ten minutes, I do an exercise in quick drawing. Or when I don’t feel like sitting down quietly, I do a quick drawing. Or when I feel like doing the ‘fast and furious exercise’ I learned from Annie Hamman, I do that (and it’s usually rather quick). And some days I start before knowing what I’m going to do, thinking I will  go fast and I end up going slow.  I may end up with something unexpectedly good, or something rather wonky.

You may see that one of them was also the basis for this quick painting.

Painting in limited analogous palette, following a lesson by Annie Hamman (from Closeup, online course)

Most drawings above were done after photo references, some from the class Close-up by Annie Hamman (the ones with a washed look for instance). I took half of that class months ago – the two weeks focusing on drawing. Recently  I decided to have look at the painting part and this time I really felt like doing some of the exercises, like the one above.

(continuing about the drawings)

One of the drawings in the collage above, was after the person sitting as a model in a free video from Sketchbookskool released last week (second from the left on the bottom row). That is an example where I thought, oh I’ll do a quick sketch and I slowed down -leaving me with a nice drawing, but not such a good likeness (I started out with a face that was too long).

One drawing above was done after an art work by an artist I found online and liked a lot, Oswaldo Guyasamin (bottom right). Another after a painting by Isabel Alvarez I found on Pinterest (third on top row: after the painting: Self-portrait, from 1923). I was rather intrigued about her and tried to find out more about her. Unfortunately in the short amount of time I had, I didn’t succeed.

I will try and find a link to the painting on Pinterest and share it here later. If you know anything about that painter, do let me know!
