Kitty’s drawing again….
Yep – for the first time THIS YEAR I have some drawings for you……
My first Drawing Salon class was last night and it was awesome I’m clearly a bit rusty but Angie taught us some cool techniques, the best one being how to ensure you don’t run out of room for your drawing on the page. Draw the feet in after you’ve positioned the head and torso – Der!!! It makes so much sense.
The proportions are so much easier to work out after that.
These two figures are a result of learning to draw a pose with weight evenly distributed and then without. Balance is crucial otherwise the figure looks like it will tip over.
I’ve still got a lot to learn about cleaning my lines up and not overworking it. Legs can be tricky too! Get them wrong and it’s so so bad – but if you get it right, it can make your illustration. Keep working ’til you have the skill to express form like Gianfranco Ferrè…Ha!!
Next week we’re learning faces!
On sewing news – still editing pics…I’ve been busy! Blog post for the amazing green polka dot dress coming soon.
Also – how cold is Melbourne right now? Brrr!! It’s been raining for the past two days and barely made it above 12C – my kinda weather!!
