sketchbook experiments


(left side: gouache on buff colored gesso. right side: paper, glue and glitter and a little gouache)

i am working on a sketchbook collaborative project with my friend Cheryln. She does four pages, then I do four, each sending the book back and forth. Here are two pages of the four I contributed a few weeks ago. I am finishing up the remaining two pages tonight.

20 minute life sketches

The Bay Area Models Guild holds a marathon drawing session every quarter. I prefer the 20 minute sketch area. I like to block in the shadows and then draw lines on top to show the form. Overall, it's a great exercise in proportion and tonal study.
