As I told in the welcome thread Iíve just recently found my ęinner artistĽ. Iím kind of surprised what Iíve achieved so far.
My first drawing was a sketch of my grandson from a photo where he did not smile (he is always smiling so that was a rare moment) I enjoyed the half hour I spent doing this, and I really felt good when his eyes turned up underneaht my hand. A comment from a pro artist on facebook motivated me, and made me think ęcome on, you can do betterĽ.
I went on line finding a lot of helpful tips. Iíve learned a lot, adaptet a few and went on developing. Maybe the most important, for me, is the use of time! Do not rush! And the outlines, there are no outlines in nature (even thoug I got that in my golf sketch) But, like the pro artist told me; when youíre in a plane, and you know youíre crossing the border of Sweden, you donít see the line, do you?Ľ
Per today Ií ve done a couple of portraits, Iíve done a golf theme and Sunday I started doing a dog. Thats when I found you, in my search of drawing fur. Iím so excited. So much to learn, so many wonderfull, skilled and generous people sharing ideas, tips and knowledge.
Iím so happy to have found you.
So, even if Iím totally new to fine art, I do want to share my development with you.
My grand son, done March 26. (Paper and pencil very low quality)
My son (schoolproject, acting in a ęfakeĽ Tag Heuer commercial) done April 17. Bought better pencils, good paper but itís maby not so good for graphite.
And at last (for now) the golf theme, done June 6. Blue Stadler Mars lumograph from 4h, 2h, hb and for the darkest parts I used a Pilot 0,3
Now Iíll go back to finish my dog. Looking forward to see a lot more of you all in WC.
Peace to all
