Bargue drawing again tonight. And this is my 100th consecutive day doing some form or artwork.
Still working hard on training my eye through the Bargue course. Even though this session was only an hour long I worked really hard on getting the drawing as perfect as possible.
So this is the 100th consecutive session that I have done and I wanted to do something special but I have been so busy that I have been finding it difficult to even do more than an hour a night. So, I just continued with the course, although at this rate I will finish the Bargue course in about a year… I do plan on working hard on my drawing for at least nine months before going back to mostly painting, I think this really strict schedule can only help me in the future. From session 1 this year the my biggest failure has always been drawing and I need to really focus on it hard.
Currently I’m also reading “The Practice and Science of Drawing” by Harold Speed, and it is giving a great account of the exact path an artist should take to become an excellent draftsman.
As I did a search for this book to link it I found that it is also a free e-book, of course I find this out after I purchase it.
What is interesting here is that even the weight of the line is throwing off my ability to judge if a distance/width is correct. There are a couple places here that look incorrect but when compared are not.
