Re: May Quick Draw Sketch Challenge

Hi Ron.. Thanks for hosting. Seems I have let the sketching get away from me the past month. Perhaps I can get things back on track this month. Hope to. Thanks again!

Jenna...I checked out your blog and saw the kitties. I too am a cat lover. Nothing more fun to watch than kittens! Cindy. Oh and the pen & ink longhorn is spectacular!

Re: May Quick Draw Sketch Challenge

Thanks so much, Cindy. Cats are so great, aren't they? Thank you for the kind comments on my longhorn drawing!

Ron, I hope to sketch some this month. I love that horse!

Re: May Quick Draw Sketch Challenge

I can see them now, thanks! I went ahead and sketched a cow and calf today using black Tombow brush pen on 9x12 Strathmore Bristol 400 series plate surface paper. After drawing in dark shapes with the brush tip, I used a rigger brush and water for midtones. Total time not even 30 minutes It is cropped here to about 5x7.



Here is my photo taken at my mother's farm in west Texas, circa late 90s. I like the strong shadows in this photo but have never painted it.

Re: May Quick Draw Sketch Challenge

Wonderful sketching, Kay! It is so fluid and soft, yet with bold lines. It's a great balance, and you really got the gestures of the cow and her calf just right. Well done!

Cows make for interesting shapes in artwork. Great sketch, Kay. Well done for under 30 minutes! Way to start things off.

Re: May Quick Draw Sketch Challenge

Thanks Jenna and Ron! I did get the calf's body too elongated. Oh well, I'll do a painting from this and draw porportionally.
