What is working in this in your opinion? I 'm wanting to understand where you are coming from.

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: One From the Sketchbook

For me the figure is working in space, all the things on the floor ended up on the floor. I like how the hair turned out, I didn't take it too far, and the figure feels relatively correct to me. I've been experimenting over the past couple months and ending up with a lot I'm not happy with, these are a couple I am happy with.

Thanks for your comments!

Thoughts?

Just had a look at your other posts wrightbrain and your watercolour work is lovely and loose and your use of colour is superb. Personally I dont like pen and ink work, probably because I cant do it! I love the looseness of the head which doesnt seem to quite follow through in the rest of the picture. We've just beeen having a discussion on here about criticism and you're the first new poster since. Art is so subjective isnt it

David,

Thanks for your comments. I'm certainly here for critique, I think that's kind of the point personally.

Here's one from a life drawing session from this morning:

Thoughts?

I agree with your comments I was just curious as to what criteria you were using to assess your work.

I have plenty of thoughts but I don't know your artistic destination or where you are wanting to go with the figure.

These are my thoughts from my point of view they may not be relevant to where you are. The hands and feet appear a little small in scale with the rest of the figure. The ink is overworked too many superfluous lines, shows you are unsure of the shapes and forms of the human body this will improve with experience.

If you isolated the hair would you recognize it as hair or rocks or anything but hair on the head of a human? I think you like it because the lines are less scratchy than the rest of the forms?

In the graphite drawing I can see you are searching for the forms are these open sessions or tutored sessions?

Re: One From the Sketchbook

Sessions are open, not tutored.

I see what you mean about the ink being overworked. I think I like this one because it's the least overworked of others. I also agree about the hands and feet. I have the problem of a lot of my heads being too large. The graphite is borderline on this issue.

I am certainly searching for form.

I appreciate your feedback, I will keep some of these things in mind.

More time with the figure and watercolour will give you better results so keep up the good work. The figure in watercolour in my opinion does better with simple glazes and a sound underdrawing like Charles Reid's drawings forget about his painting method, too messy.

Some good things going on there. I would work more on your drawing skills the face isn't convincing either the forehead is out or the jaw.

Re: One From the Sketchbook

I like the watercolours more than the other drawings particularly the last one. It is difficult to get everything done in the time (proportions and tones).
