Drawing People



One of my goals for 2007 is to draw more human faces and figures.  I sketched the Holbein drawing of Anne Cressacre again and this time added a watercolor wash.  In addition, I started what I hope will be a series of dancers taken from photos in dance magazines and programs from our New York City dance companies.  I think it will be fun to struggle through these exercises - I certainly need many days just drawing hands!



GRAND GRAND drawings, Shirley!! I applaud you for your commitment to faces and figures ....!!! GREAT JOB on these! Love the toes on point too!

You certainly will get good practice with hands if you do dancers - what a good idea.

I love the girl "after" Holbein, Shirley--expressive, delicate, lovely...

What a wonderful goal and great start Shirley!

I followed the link from your message at the EDM yahoo group and wanted to cheer you on as you challenge yourself to draw more people and faces. Nice work here! (and thank you for sharing travel sights)~ Take care ~ Sharon

Very nice face, lovely and simple - I am really struggling with faces - your blog is very interesting and I enjoy visiting England through you.

Shirley, it looks like you're off to a great start. It'll be fun to follow your progress.

Great job....beautiful feet on the dancer...

Wonderful facial expression on the top portrait, and great arches on the feet of that dancer! Fun stuff!
