I worked on the close up of the Cherry Blossoms. I did not like the background so I changed it to a more greyed out darker one. I added more texture and roundness to the buds and the branches. I think it is close to done. The Blossoms that survived the crazy weather are peaking this weekend so get to the Tidal Basin to enjoy or wait till next year.
I have worked more on drawing studies, I did this study of a hand bone structure done in pencil. The story is the study if bone structure and muscles helps with drawing skills. I guess it does but maybe it just helps with drawing.
Tonight's post is another of the sketches I did on my travels. This woman has a lot of character, which is code for her face is lopsided. Now is it character or a flawed part of my learning process. The great thing about art is it doesn't matter.
This is another pencil sketch done while trapped on an airplane. I think she is not happy to be on the plane either, though she was a picture in a book. I think i spent too much time traveling. I will try to get to the easel for some painting tomorrow.
This is more of the sketching I did on the airplane rides I took the past couple of weeks. It is not an original design but something to pass the time captive in an airplane seat. It is done with lead pencil.
I am back. I have been traveling for the last three weeks for regular work. I have not been able to post or to do a lot of art work. I did this sketch on the airplane and it is copied out of a book, but it a good way to work on technique. This was done with pencil.
