This image is from a quick sketch I did when I was sitting behind this guy. For some reason in sketching people from behind I’m able to see the big shapes much more quickly and accurately. One thing I’m doing more consciously now is noting the values when I do the sketch. I find the drawing skills that I’m teaching in my Basic Drawing Skills class are also the skills I’m practicing and they really do help make sketching a faster and more productive activity. I like the added interest created by him looking down. I’m enjoying doing acrylic on canvas and this is one of the 10 little canvas boards I made this weekend. I’m just loving this new direction in my art!
