Finding The Art

Posted Mar 2022

I frequently draw Large Groups ~ even more than 7 people ~ when I'm drawing Caricatures, but I was taken by surprise when I was asked to draw a FASHION SKETCH of 6 people at a Wedding. And then, shortly after I started, I agreed to let a 7th person in. That makes me feel confused. Because I've already designed an approach for 6 people, but then... quick change.... takes me off solid ground.... onto shifting sands....

Okay. Art is in the moment. I agreed, Guests were Happy, I could not get bored, and I did whatever I did. The Fashion Sketch of 7 people flowed. (In looking back on the experience, I should have asked to see Everyone's Fashion. Some people's bodies were hidden behind others ~ just their heads popping out.) I just kept that marker moving. Good experience ~ I kinda liked Most of the decisions that I made.

The Guests Enjoyed. But it felt wrong to me. Like I was working too hard. My job includes things like sending quotes, keeping lists, preparing supplies, showing up on time..... but when it comes to the Art, it shouldn't really be Work. The Artist should be Doing it. An Artist, like a Dancer or an Actor, needs to be In The Zone to Really do it.

So when I came home, I looked into the situation for myself. To be better prepared to handle Large Group Fashion Sketches in the future. And I finally came up with a great one!

First, I tried it on my IPad. Just because I felt like using my IPad. Time-off, you know. And I figured that I would be able to make changes ~ each time I came across a moment that I wasn't enjoying. It came out looking very good ~ but I felt like it lost the immediacy of what I drew At the Event.

Still feeling interested in my situation, I picked up an old marker and a blue scrap paper ~ without even having the Reference Photo nearby. I just wanted to see if I would like the experience better if I didn't fuss with poses ~ how about a simple direct, draw each person just standing there... No. Still, too 'headsy' for me. Too many heads stuck together with just dully describing each fashion.....

Then I finally did it! I just went with the flow. No predraw. I just started with what was important, and I took it from there. Only what was needed. So much fun! I'm looking forward to doing this again. I am looking forward to my next Fashion Sketch Event!

Fascinating to Watch

Posted Feb 2022

Hello ~ Did you notice that I Duplicated the face shape, resized it, and used it for the nose in my post of February 11, 2022? It's like drawing the whole face inside the nose. So much fun. Here is a link to it:

Clarifying my Approaches

Posted Dec 2021

Had a few minutes before going in to the Bat Mitzvah yesterday, so I went back to practicing Tame Caricatures. Each of my approaches feels different than another approach. I finally discovered how to switch easily from Tame Caricatures to Cartoony Caricatures. And I realized that my best choice for Speed and Quality would be to:

Draw Individual Females as Tame Caricatures,

Draw Couples and Groups as Cartoony Caricatures,

and Draw Males as Cartoony

Using very little, if any, predraw (perhaps just size or placement), I approached the Tame Caricatures with Outside-In in my mind even though I frequently drew the Inside before the Outside. And using very little, if any, predraw (perhaps just size or placement), I approached the Cartoony Caricatures however it hit me ~ usually like yes yay also Outside-In.
