Country Club

Posted 9 days ago

Such a lovely day. Quite genteel. I drew these Caricatures a few weeks ago. At an Easter Event ~ Country Club.

I loved everything about it except the ugh ~ Backlighting. Sometimes I can't even see the Faces if the Venue puts me in front of a Window. Because I like to set up in such a way that the Guests can See the Drawing happen. That means that the person has his/her back to the window ~ so his Face is completely in Shadow.

In this case, I was able to see the Faces because the Room was light enough. And some of the Photos weren't all Sillouetted out. Here they are.

Playtime

Posted 25 days ago

I had Company at the house today. I Enjoyed sharing my Drawing Time with my Friend. But it felt more like the way I already Know what I'm doing when I'm at a Party than it felt like my Self-Development Drawing Time ~ which is what I set out to do each day.

We just did the No-predraw, No-fuss Drawings that I did here a couple of days ago. Now I wish I let my Friend lead instead ~ so I could experienced something that wasn't already in my own head.

Studying Eyes

Posted Mar 2018

I loved the CARICATURES that I drew here last night. But I did notice that most of the eyes were just hints. It worked in these pictures because that was what I saw. Many of the reference photos were reactions that these people had when I showed them their CARICATURES, and most people squint away their eyes when they Laugh. I wonder why that is. I guess it's something I'll have to think about when I have a chance to do so.

Anyway, I decided to focus on eyes tonight. So I enlarged the photos of a few of the eyes in some of my reference pictures, and I just drew the eyes. Linework like I would use in a Party Caricature, but no real exaggeration. It's Study-time again.

One of the interesting thing I picked up tonight was to see that Not All of the Eyes have a highlight. Another thing to think about. What causes one person's eyes to reflect highlights in the Same Setting where another person's eyes to not reflect highlights ~

Making Time for What we Want to Do

Posted Feb 2018

No time for posting all the pictures that I draw.

So I'm just grabbing this one that I drew at a recent event. Trying to do Everything, looks like we might end up missing what we actually do ~ not intentionally.

I'm familiar with quoting John Lennon "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." (quote possibly originally attributed to Allen Saunders in a 1957 Reader's Digest article)
