View Full Version : WDE 29 April Quick Contours
04-28-2017, 06:51 PM
I was just browsing the forum over breakfast and saw the challenge so decided to give it a go. These are all biro on a 5 x 7 sketchbook and took just a few minutes. The first 2 were done without looking at all and are the bulldog and cactus if you have trouble working them out. I cheated on the third and took a couple of peeks. Love that bulldog and may paint him later if I get time.
Thanks for looking all C and C welcome
Christine, good contours!
The bulldog with the "peek" came out quite well, probably better than it would have without doing the first sketch.

Really good ones, Christine, love your blind contour ones. You made Sarah look very cute.

Fascinating. The bulldog is clearly recognisable in the first attempt. All are nice sketches.
Everyone should try this!

I love the first bulldog and the second came out really well too. The cactus is interesting, I like the shapes. :)

Wonderful loose contours, Christine. I've been looking a lot at Diebenkorn's drawings lately, and these remind me of some of his, especially the third one.

Wow christine, that first 'blind' drawing is amazing - you obviously concentrated on looking! The cactus is def. recognisable too and the later version of Sarah is adorable!
