Talking Life study in Sketch wash...

Trying out some new Freebies , Derwent sketch and wash medium 4b , they are fun to use , but they are quite thick and in places I did get kinda grinding on it, Water is not a very forgiving agent , tried to get my child while she was at peace with herself for once ....

Good work Sandra !

I never tried anything with water-medium from life, I think it is very difficult medium.

Re: Life study in Sketch wash...

Interesting work, Sandra. Are you using water on top of graphite/charcoal ? Using a brush ?

Merci Robert .. . I feel some days Im wearing her down to the Point where she is getting more willing to be my tool to practice from , she was watching tv Last night and well I tried to get her down as quick as I could , against bouts of her moving maybe 20 mins drawing time ...

Arh Duston , you are such a great Guy. .. thankyou for liking this even though its not that great , but Im glad we can share in our practice along the way ...it is not the easyist of mediums thats for sure and I felt good that at least I got her to look human with a element of Likeness ....

Hello Kiran , thanks for the look New Daddy! .... yES Im using Derwent sketch and wash pencils they come in different grades too , I sketched in the main I then applied the was with a fairly loose brush, I found you dont need alot of water to be honest and I liked the effect it was giving me except where it nearly eat the paper on me ~cheers

Cheers Carol , I loved it for what it is ~simple , I agree and yeah I did lengthen her neck abit to much I think, but she is quite longish in the neck , in fact shes very lanky and tall~ish takes after her 6/1/2 foot Father

Sandra, it does look like a fun medium to use, you have a nice relaxed look here.

Re: Life study in Sketch wash...

Nice drawing Sandra (or should that be painting?). I'd suggest checking the chin and neck as they angle they are sticking out doesn't seem to match the top of her head (could mean moving the chin and nect back or top of head + forehead forwards). As always with my comments this is my impression and may well be wrong.

Charles , Im deeply great full to read any of your thoughts of me ' Dear Man

Nathan , my good man , Ok ' Iv no idea what you mean , if her heads on a slant wouldnt it be angled , and its fixed meaning the medium I cant go back in and readjust these sorry , ...but Im glad you also think its nice , hopeing each one gets more as I go along ...

Heres my Son , hes as bad as my Nell in not wanting to sit but last night I made him , I think if there had been straps on the chair I would have tied him down ... The next one is the wash over my drawing to show the before and after ,....as I said H2O is not forgiving and well I think next time I mite need to use proper water PAPER , as this is on sketch paper as you can see it eat my paper , well Learning has its prices ! ... but theres nothing like pushing the bounbries is there `cheers to you all

Sandra, lovely! I can see a resemblance, especially in the first. You are right, you may need different paper.

PS. I really like the great contrast you have achieved with these two drawings.
