Because Rhonda asked for it…here are a couple examples of the stuff we work on in Drawing 101. Focus is on drawing fast and big, getting a light gesture drawing in and then going back to get the size, placement, etc correct. Just using linework, the smudges are from using my dirty old chamois to erase lines. I’m trying very hard to avoid jumping into values, because that’s my drawing crutch. Need to focus on my linework in a serious way.
This class helps so much, great for fundamentals in a guided environment. And learning to immediately correct mistakes and not try to commit to a wrong line is surprisingly difficult to learn! But it paid off well last night in the portrait class when I started to instinctively just erase bad lines rather than try to work with them.
