Ages since I did a blog post…so what was I doing? Got a son married and acquired a beautiful brand new daughter! 🙂
This one is going to be about more sketches, some that I enjoyed making, and I quite like!
I seem to be able to do a better job with objects from Mother Nature than with man made stuff!
I detest doing still life! Why draw objects when you can draw people? So this was one part of my Commercial Art assignments that ensured that I quit the course in a hurry!
You can possibly see my heart was not in this 😦
Even the normally-generous-with-his-praise tutor had to tell me to improve my finishing!
And here are some more stern remarks!
Actually, I did not think this satin lehnga ( skirt) was so bad…here is a close up
Did I mention these were done with a nib, which you dipped in a bottle of black India ink? You had to have excellent control over the amount of ink you ‘drew’ into the pen!
Done with great disinterest, for some odd reason, this crumpled sheet of paper found his approval :-p
Here is a silver chain, which wasn’t bad, though the pendant was quite ordinary.
Another hideous object!
But there were a few still lifes I did which I like! I’ll share those in another post 🙂
These sketches were submitted as part of an assignment I did for a correspondence course in commercial art!
These were of our beloved greyhound – the old gentleman was nearly 14 years old when these were done.
The next four sketches are of ‘The Doggess Who Wouldn’t Be’ – the most beautiful black Cocker Spaniel with a white throat and that tiny little tuft of white on the tip of her tail!
