Staying in Shape

Posted 16 days ago

This is a great Caricature. I know what I'm doing.

But the agony to keep on top of it ~ to stay in shape ~ to keep the energy in my Artwork. I'm writing this post to show you what goes on behind the scenes. The sort of stuff I do Before I get to yet another Party, and still be thrilled to be drawing there. I keep my interest alive by Enjoying Artwork all the time ~ Feels like I never run out of new ideas.

Tonight I got the idea to work intermittently with the Marker or the Color Stick. Instead of what is usually done in which we draw the Outline with the Marker, and Then we go back into it with the Color Stick. I thought I would be able to affect the Emphasis this way.

But as usual, when I'm studying One Aspect of Drawing, One Idea, something else drops. Struggle, struggle, struggle, ooooooo ~ Then I was able to Let Go. And Enjoy Drawing ~ regardless of whether I felt like using Marker or Color Stick. Nothing boring here

High Contrast

Posted Dec 2018

Time Off ~ I was playing around ~ just drawing another Caricature based on a Photo that I have here on this Blog.

I wanted to include High Contrast in my Drawing. Adding Dark Blacks.

Line Quality

Posted Oct 2018

Playing Scrabble. Waiting for my friend to put down a word already. I'm doodling.

Funny to think that the first picture here ~ the one with the rougher lines ~ might actually be more useful as my practice. Because I've been drawing graceful lines ever since I was a little girl pirouetting. It feels very natural for me to draw like that. But the chunkier lines? I've only been using then for about 10 years now. By practicing them, I'm more likely to switch to this type of Line when I'm drawing Caricatures.

That's why I like to draw in a Real Party situation. No time to think. No time to control very much of what I draw. Yet I feel thrilled about feeling confident. By practicing now, my hand automatically does it when it's needed at an Event.

My Own Schooling

Posted Sep 2018

Ouch......Ooooch.....Eeech......Och.....

I had gone to the Dentist. When he found me studying how the eyeBall fits into the eye socket, he shared his book with me: Netters Atlas of Human Anatomy.

Good Stuff ~ I feel like there are a lot of potential ideas here for a Caricature Artist
