Tonight I was working on perspective but I found it very boring and tedious. This is something I need to learn to love though.

I’ve been trying to keep my artistic skills up in many different areas by establishing a weekly plan of working on a different aspect of art each day.

  • Monday: Still life
  • Tuesday: Figure Study
  • Wednesday: Live figure drawing
  • Thursday: Interior / perspective
  • Friday: Portrait study
  • Saturday: Live figure drawing
  • Sunday: Landscape

Now all I need to do is draw or paint 3 hours a day and I’m golden.

working on perspective: setup

I used a ruler for these lines, but I didn’t establish the lines until I estimated the angle by site, then I tested the angle, then made adjustments while drawing them with the ruler. I worked this way to help improve my ability to judge angles without having to measure each and every line I put down.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
