Most people, I would suspect, may have a more productive Sunday morning than me. Why? I like to draw on Sunday mornings.
I haven’t been out drawing much lately. I just haven’t really felt like going out drawing amongst the masses so I bring the inspiration to my kitchen table.
Since drawing faces is what like the most – actually, drawing people is what I like the most and fashion magazines for inspiration work out pretty good; however, the people populating magazines are always pretty much the same: they fit a prescribed ideal beauty that isn’t seen in the real world. So when I draw from magazines I like to manipulate some aspect of the face the give the subject a unique/unusual apperance.
Drawing from magazines are always so flat, where as when I am drawing out in the world I have to be quick and capture the subject with just a few lines of my pencil. However, drawing at the kitchen table means I can do so in the comfort of my own home and have all my watercolors right by me.
I need to get out and draw some ‘real’ people, real soon.
