Drawing someone in front of me....I find it difficult, but of course...... the challenge is still fun.
Most of the time, I'm trying to capture a tiny essence of who I saw. My quick, rough gesture drawings capture so much more than a can get when I have time to think and "try" to draw correctly. I like the drawings I've created in less than 20 minutes.....the most success I've had, in my opinion, are the 1- 5 minute sketches. They might be only a few lines, but they can say more than a drawing that I've worked the technical aspects. What I win in technical points, I usually lose in emotion, capturing movement or their personality.
The more I go on pure instinct, leave my inner critic back at home, the more "life" there is in the drawing. That inner critic...she's such a pain!
She's always hanging out with me, but she doesn't get to vote as much as she used to :)
Thank you for looking!
Have a great weekend!
