Face and Figures - This Week's Practice

I'm still thoroughly enjoying my dear friend Bunny's photos from Jaipur India and this week sketched one face and 3 figures.  The man was photographed at Samode Palace, now a luxury hotel. 


 The women were working at the Amber Fort carrying pieces of rocks from place to place on their heads.

Virtual Travel Sketchbook - India

I love my friend Bunny's photos from her trip to India and look forward to sketching and painting some of these interesting people in their beautifully colored clothes.  It is a joy to look at her albums for specific photos for my figure drawing practice.  This year, as I practice, I will continue to add faces to my figures.  Older readers of this blog may remember that I sketched figures or faces, but never together, through much of 2008.

I still have several more figures that I would like to paint from Album #3 - and then 12 more albums to go!   Thanks again Bunny.

Virtual Trip to India

One of my dear friends and her husband spent at least a month visiting their son and his family in India.  I know we will never be there on vacation, so I asked her to share all of her wonderful photos with me.  I plan to slowly look at all of the digital photo albums she shared and to draw and paint some of the people.  Here are my favorite photos from the first 2 albums.
