I painted this awhile back...and tonight I made a few changes. I like the big shapes and the contrast.
I got to the end of my small sketchbook...and, as is my routine, I put Crystal's photo in the back of my new sketchbook. I think Crystal and I have seen our way through three small sketchbooks. (I wrote about this once before here).
For my first sketch in my new book I sketched Dave B. I sort of made him look a little like a little old lady. Sorry, Dave! (and that's ok. I vow to do better next time... the cool thing about a little sketchbook..it's so friendly...it is sure to forgive me for all my mistakes).
We have a (renewed) sketch group that meets on Thursdays (after the regular art discussion meeting). I've gotten my favorite supplies together for next time. Marvy Le Plume pens for values, a Pentel brush pen, a fountain pen, a mechanical pencil, a red "value finder" and two sketchbooks. Here is a facebook page, (in case you want to see what we are doing).
The value finder is very helpful (though I forget to use it half the time).
Ok, and what about you...what are you doing? Happy New upcoming week...!
