Art is like Swimming

Posted 5 days ago

Getting back to confidently (aka happily) drawing Caricatures again. I put the Portrait drawing in its place.

Yes I do them both. But at Different Times! They are Not the same.

Yes the Drawing Fundamentals are the Same for Any type of drawing. Caricatures. Portraits. Even Drafting. But my approach is completely different for the different types of drawings.

Here's a simile (metaphor?) about it: Drawing Caricatures is like Drawing Portraits the way Baking a Cake is like Making Chicken Soup.

Or or.... Drawing a Caricature is like Drawing a Portrait the way Running a Marathon is to Bench Pressing.

how about.... Drawing a Caricature is like Drawing a Portrait the way my Website is to Setting up Linotype.

I like playing with Words. I like Drawing Pictures. All kinds of Pictures. But I better be into the Caricatures today. Because I have Caricature Jobs on Friday and Saturday.

No Predraw

I'm enjoying to draw withOut a predrew these days. Easy drawings. Freely.

I just came across this one while unpacking from my recent trip to California. I had drawn it on the plane ~ just before landing

Loops and Scribbles

Posted Oct 2018

I never know where my studies will take me. Tonight I sat down to draw Lines with my Markers (as usual). But I noticed my Color Sticks here ~ Perhaps it would be a good idea to draw (wide-line) Shapes with Those instead.

I tried different Pressures. Nope.

I tried different Papers. Nope Nope.

Maybe I should stop using the Side of the stick. Maybe I should Color Color Color real fast with the Point of the stick. Well.... a little better.... a little smoother...... but I cuts into my mojo.

Perhaps I should use those Artist Chalks that I bought many years ago, but never used. No ~ I still feel like those add to the Show because people don't usually Color with their Gloved Fingers ~ but the actual picture comes out looking Wishy-Washy and it can get on people's Clothing.

Back to the Color Sticks. Perhaps there's a Colorless Blender around here ~ like I'd have time to do That at a Party. But no ~ I was never into that. So I tried to smooth the Color with a Wax Candle. That didn't work. Then ~ hahaha ~ I decided to just make Scribbles of Color with the Point of the Color Sticks (and a Few Small Side-Swipes) ~ and I developed this Playful Color Application. Looks Happy.

What a Surprise. As usual, I don't know where my studies will take me.

I don't see myself using this regularly at Events, but I just Might swing into it once in a while. Makes a Unique and Happy Caricature.

Oooh ~ almost 3 am ~ I'm feeling Loopy (Tired)
