More Heads, and Trees

I’m getting back into the thing of posting what I drew lately, as long as it’s not too dreadful. It’s been hard for me lately, because I’ve been trying new things, and am not totally comfortable with them. Or even convinced that I should be trying them and not doing things more useful. But life usually has a way of finding a use for it all. So, I’m mainly trying to work more, and keep cheerful. Drawing helps a lot.

These are people passing by, and things seen in a park. Also more head studies. As I was saying, I’m trying for a happy medium between accuracy and freedom. Some of the pen sketches were drawn without guidelines, which pleases me when they work out.



I’m trying hard to draw what I see, rather than relying on shortcuts and “symbols,” which are like cliches in one’s style. Actually, I’m pleased with how it’s working. Can draw better trees, and likenesses now.

Most of the pencil drawings were done with my intention of making them bases for later digital paintings. I’ll get back into watercolours. Maybe share with you some of the things I’ve been doing for commissions.
