    Day 6 Second Post

    Day 6 eye 2

    Quick sketch. For each drawing I am going to try to apply ideas to a quick 30 second sketch done in very soft black pencil crayon. It will take a bit to figure out how to translate the marks to another medium.

    Hi Susan,

    Great progress, well done! I love the alternative medium ones.  Can you please take a photo of your crayons?  I’m always interested in the particular media people are using.

    Cheers,
    David.

    Day 9

    Still working on the quick sketch, haven’t got the lines right yet. The pencil I am using is called, CaranD’ Ache, Luminance series colour 6901. They have a nice soft feel and work well on newsprint for quick expressive line.

    Hi Susan,

    Great work!  Lovely flowing lines.  I see what you mean about less lines, but this is getting really nice.  The media photograph is very interesting, thank you for posting it.  Firstly it shows that the drawings are around 8″ across so quite large (I thought they were smaller when there was no scale to compare to). Secondly, again very interesting, is that you have two pencils sharpened differently.  In the beginners class they show you how to sharpen a pencil and try to get a fine point after exposing a lot of lead for the laying down.  They don’t mention, I seem to recall, the idea of keeping two pencils sharpened differently – it’s probably a good timesaver – nice tip!

    By the way, there is also a Discord server where people are posting their work.  I’ve only just started using it TBH.  If you find it quiet in these forums I think it’s because a lot of students are focused on Discord.

    Best wishes, David.

    Day 10! 1/10 done.

    Start of phase 2, now that I have a feel for the shape of the eyes I am now working on line quality.   Thanks David for the heads up on the Discord server, perhaps I will post some work there as well.  I have to work at getting the eyes down in size but I find it hard to be loose, quick and also to draw small. When I get to the end of my pencils I shave all the wood off and use the bit that is left for shading. Works wells.

    Take care, Thanks for taking a moment to give feedback. Appreciated.

    A busy day for me today, just one eye. Wish I had more time.
