Practice Pages

Several practice journal pages from this week:

I am having trouble getting used to the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and decided that I should sketch a few Rembrandt drawings in pencil and then quickly draw them with the Pentel.  I wish that I could control it better, but here they are for all to see.  I tried to copy line for line from the Master from his very quick sketches.


I really liked the exercise described by Joanne last week on the EDM Message Board and finally found a full frontal magazine ad.  My favorite drawing pencil is a Mahogany color watercolor pencil and unfortunately it doesn't scan very well.  But I was pleased with the exercise and will continue to look for more photos.



The sketches came out nice. The half portrait is very good. It looks natural.

Wonderful job! And I have to admit, I've had my Pentel pocket brush for over a year now, and we're still not friends! Speck just got hers, and already she's doing wonderful things!! ( http://specksbrain.blogspot.com/2010/01/pigma-brush-pen-lion-statue.html )

A fun looking exercise, and I think the half-face drawing is beautiful as it totally fits perfectly

I read about that exercise and it sounded neat to me too. You did a great job with it! I like your loose sketches too, and don't see a lack of control. I see style..

Shirley, thanks for the reminder of this fun exercise!
