sketchbook

started to sketchbook again. Mainly on my train journey to work in the morning. I also want to draw my daughter more often. Im trying to do a drawing a day! Its not a rule but its amazing how much you can draw on a 40 mins train journey to work.

here are a few from the past week or 2.  Mediums.. ink pen or pencil.. Pencil is more similar to charcoal as you can blend it with a paper blender. I especially like using a 6b pencil.

figure drawing experiment. A small drawing about 12 inches high.

I guess with this one i tried something a bit different in terms of stylisation. Experimenting with shape and having fun. I think its time i moved on to another series of drawings next. I'm thinking maybe drawings with a large number of figures exploring and pushing  further different concepts. I also need to work with clothed figures. I wish i had the time and motivation to post more but like many people work and life is always so busy. I think that's why i enjoy life drawing because its a very structured task and a really honest way to see your drawing progress.
