This is a prelude to the sketchbook remix class I'll be taking next semester. This was great to do in the middle of other projects during finals.
Placemat from Chinese Restaurant, acrylic, watercolor, matte medium, sandpaper
I realized I need to know how to draw ears from memory, so I drew a few of some friends and a few of mine. I also really enjoy painting with oils on unprimed rives. I kind of emulated a few of my favorite pages from James Jean's college sketchbooks.
graphite, oil, acrylic, colored pencil.
This is on the last page of my current moleskine, but I think im going to work more with my homemade sketchbook now (the one above). The three women on the right are actually from the same image by Norman Rockwell. It's one of my favorite pieces by him, so I spent a lot of time redrawing the same portrait, trying to capture her perfect expression. The middle one is the closest, but I still didn't get it completely.
graphite, acrylic, gouache.
