Monochrome Start #4

Now I’m getting back into the swing of things. At least my routine is back in order, but this start didn’t go so well.

I’m out of my comfort zone here. I’m drawing with a brush, and I have nothing to rest my hand upon like when I draw with my drawing board.

Basically I’m training myself to get in a good drawing with a brush in less time. If I can achieve that then I can consistently take my oils to the life drawing sessions on Saturday.

My far reaching goal is to some day start producing meaningful paintings, that feature figures, are technically sound, reflect contemporary culture and contain a message. In order to do that my drawing skills have to be the best with brush or charcoal.

The only way to get there is through putting in the time, hard work and a lot of failures.

Too much constant measuring, I would like to get away from that.

  1. This method looks more complex and complicated than drawing with charcoal or pencils. The brush is more fluid and soft, so it takes a lot more control of your hand to get the lines drawn right.
    Good job with sticking with something that is challenging. It’s easy to give up on something we aren’t comfortable with.
