And, last but not the least, the eye! I am truly excited with my next assignments on this amazing course! Are you curious? Just wait and see... I will be bringing you fresh updates on my portraiture course! Hugs to all!
I finally finished the individual features studied on the first week of my portraiture course with Cindy Wider. I struggled so much to find some "pyjama time" - as Cindy would say - for my art. But here it is. The ear!
This week I am hosting the drawing challenge at Drawspace.com, and this is my contribution. It was inspired by a photo I have taken, during my holidays, in Guimarães, North of Portugal. It was the first time I tried my new set of watercolor pencils and it was indeed exciting!! I know the paper was not the most appropriate one (just a 150 gr. drawing paper) but was anyhow suited to give me some pleasurable moments...
Hello, my dear friends! This is one more shading exercise for Cindy Wider´s online art course. We are studying drapery this week and, although I am using now an extra dark and extra soft brand of pencils that gave me some nice headakes (;p), I am finally happy with the result! I hope the teacher will feel the same way! :D
Do you want some tea? :) I honestly thought I would not be able to complete this shading exercise for Cindy Wider´s online course! "No way!" I though... But, voilá! Here it is with my best effort! It´s incredible how, during the drawing and shading process, I always doubt myself. But then, I just go ahead with it putting aside all the negative thoughts and I just can´t believe my eyes when I look at the final result! It´s indeed a great feeling when you do create something... I am loving my art learning journey!
I am just thrilled with my latest drawing!! I know it is not a master piece but for me it has a special meaning since I have really struggled to be able to draw a more realistic portrait! I know I owe this result to my teacher, Cindy Wider, although this is not an exercise for the art course and I haven´t had yet portraiture, but I have used here some of the lessons taken so far!...
This was done with graphite pencils for this week´s drawing challenge in Drawspace.com, and the reference picture was provided by it´s host, An.
My last project for Cindy Wider´s online Course. This is just an exercise, not a creation of mine. We were supposed to do the outline drawing with the help of a grid, transfer the drawing to quality paper and then apply all the 6 different pencil strokes we have just learned! Its yellowish color is defect of the photo... The drawing (on a A3 paper) did not fit into the scanner! :p
