Welcome to the weekly drawing thread! Each week a new thread with a reference and suggestions for that reference will be posted for anyone to draw and post their results throughout the week. You may follow the weekly suggestion which will be a loose guideline to try or draw and experiment on your own around this week’s subject and post your results, but the theme is ‘White Values’. Some people look on it as a challenge… but that's the great thing about these 'challenges' - they aren't against any other artists...the challenges is to you....to do YOUR best against yourself! So it doesn't matter what other people do, as long as you do your best!! Better still - do it consistently, so that no matter what is thrown at you, you attempt it...that's the challenge!
Attempt to keep your work to a sketchbook size and consider attaching your image as a thumbnail to make it easier for us to browse the work. Also, when posting you should consider adding information such as medium, support, dimensions, whether complete or not, so it will be easier for others to comment on your work.
The goal of this thread is open-ended. This means you decide what it is you want out of a weekly challenge. Do you want to just sketch or do you want to become more proficient at drawing, or do you wish to break into other mediums or just play around? It is entirely up to you as the artist. You know your own strengths and weaknesses and you can find them in each reference we are faced with. Practice is where it’s at, just think of this thread as your personal motivator.
Any level of drawing is encouraged to join in!!!
Two Reminders: Different mediums are fine as long as we post preliminary drawings, sketches, and "under-drawing" of the painting, so the discussion on the thread stays relevant...and be sure to post the final painting for comparison of your drawing. Drawing can be crucial to the final product of a painting and we would like to see how!
We accept submissions for reference photos! Feel free to PM reference photos or links to Dee, Gordon, Jim, Al or Connie -of images out of the image library that you would like to see here or upload your own photos...but be sure to keep in mind of photo quality and choice of reference. We put all submissions in order of their arrival in our PM Inboxes. Have anymore questions regarding this, feel free to PM one of us. Thanks!
