Figure study 

Figure study on artset pro. Don’t know where I was going here.. Must revist:)

The natural movement of one’s soul is upwards. But just as any object is dragged down when a heavy weight is tied to it, the burden of the body drags down the soul.

Figure drawing artset pro

God I love life drawing 🙂 here’s another experiment!

 I hope you enjoy looking at her as much as I enjoyed creating her.

 Take from it what you will.. An image can speak different words to everyone, don’t you think?

Life Study; biro on Cambridge ruled paper 

It’s been a week of being stuck in front of computer or vegging in front of telly/cinema screen. I needed to hold a pen in my hand and create something even if it was a quick scribble.
So scribble I did, behold my lady drawn on ruled paper with a biro as that’s all the materials I had in my work briefcase lol 

  
I like her! i hope you do to! Tonight I am off to the Blog awards where I’m shortlisted in the arts and culture section. Very exciting stuff! Not a hope of winning I’m just going to sit back and enjoy! Like this lady but with more clothes 😛 

Have a great day 🙂

5 min red sketch on Artset app

Red is a hard colour to draw on… Also I didn’t have my glasses on so details are very simple haha sometimes it makes thinks a little more interesting when you can’t see the full detail you are making 🙂 and sometimes it’s a mess when you put your glasses on lol

  

Oil pastel sketch

As for you girls, you must risk everything for Freedom, and give everything for Passion, loving everything that your hearts and your bodies love. The only thing higher for a girl and more sacred for a young woman than her freedom and her passion should be her desire to make her life into poetry, surrendering everything she has to create a life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in her imagination. – Roman Payne

  

God I’ve not tried the oil pastel for a while, this is on artset, quick sketch to test the waters, wanted to keep it quick, strong and dynamic.

More practice needed to get back in swing of oils, I’ve never favoured them really as I like the softness of pastel usually but it’s good to switch things up 🙂 bit of gel pain thrown in.. Just cause I felt like it lol

Figure study, charcoal and pastel

Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.

Vibrant pastel lady

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture grey, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.
Allen Klein

This is an old pastel painting I did in Crawford. I came across it and I wanted to share it again as it brought me back to that moment in class where after the half hour we turned the easels around and I remember the teacher going WOW .. Now not because it’s an amazing drawing but because the colours are insane!  Continue reading

Reclining Woman, charcoal on wash over script

The thing women have yet to learn, is that no one gives you power. You just take it!

Lying down has been the theme of my week 😛 this is a charcoal drawing (with wash) just over a photocopy script. Continue reading

Male Figure: Watercolour on Artset app

“The very strength that protects the heart from injury is the strength that prevents the heart from enlarging to its intended greatness within. The song of the voice is sweet, but the song of the heart is the pure voice of heaven.”

Cartoon emotion 

I wanted to try something different. A simple cartoon type image but not a caricature. Wanted to TRY have not too much detail but to convey emotion. 

I love big hair in cartoon women, I hope that’s not what she is upset about 😛

 
Artset app, no stylus. I do rather use a stylus but trying to change it up. Mix of charcoal, marker and paint at end for the dramatic highlights. I do love my contrasts.

I hope you like.

Happy painting
