A Study from a Different Angle

This is harder than it seems

Well, as promised, I did another face today, using pencil rather than paint.  Am trying new angles and am astounded at how difficult it seems at first pass.   I used a photograph to get the perspective. What I want to focus on next time are the odd shapes that ordinary things take when seen from an angle.

Draw, draw, draw!! Reminds me of endless Czerny piano exercises to strengthen my fingers and increase my speed to prepare for performing Flight of the Bumble Bee. I was not allowed to play the piece itself until the exercises were acceptable.  So, this week I’m not letting myself paint until I’m in love with the drawings. Have a glorious week.  You know what I’ll be doing.
