The first sketch I did was a blind contour drawing. Basically I looked at the image and didn't look as I drew the edges of the image. In school I used to do these with charcoal and large newsprint. I just loved it.
The second one I didn't like, so I didn't finish it, but when I went back to take the photo (had to improvise since my scanner died) I didn't think it was so bad after all!
This one is more light and shadow sketching. I had fun with this one.
This one was more a gesture drawing, just giving the basics of what I was seeing...although I think it ended up looking like I was just scribbling.
It was definitely fun to pick up a pencil and draw again, but I will need to get a larger sketch book, and a new set of drawing pencils.
Have you ever tried any of these sketching styles? What is your favorite? Do you have any suggestions on how I can improve my sketching?
Decided to post a few of Katy's photos that I liked! Not bad for an aspiring photographer?
