For me it has been a rocky start to 2014, both personally, healthwise and in my art. I developed a migraine new years eve that put me in bed for 3 days. So no art was done then. I am trying to get back into sketching and or painting daily but it has been a bit hit and miss. I am hoping things will settle and I'll get back some routine.
Here are a couple of things I did manage to do. All of the drawings were done in pen in my Moleskine sketchbook. I am finally enjoying using it. I guess it was just a matter of finding the right tool to suit.
I was resting in the sun along with the cats so did some quick gesture drawings. They had to be quick as even though they seemed to be sleeping as soon as I tried drawing them they moved. Those cat senses on full alert... lol
Jasper likes to perch on top of the footseat. It is filled with styrofoam balls like a bean bag and is very loose and floppy. Somehow he manages to climb on top and scrunch around till he is comfy. This is a back view.
As a group exercise with some friends, here are some gesture drawings of people in different poses. I like to have small challenges like this. And also fun to share.
A friends son had his 8th birthday on Monday. He loves cats so I painted this cat face and turned it into a card for him. His face lit up when he opened it. It was a winner. That made me feel really nice. :)
