sketchbook #22

This was done before the previous 2 and for that its not quite right with all the proportions. I hadn't found the time to draw for a long while so I guess this is the break-in sketch. I find it takes a drawing or two to get back into my grove, thank goodness it sticks with me.

I'm with these guys. Hatching is a lost art but ....WOW!
I wish I "got back in the groove" as well as you.

david,
like every other work by you, this also is of high quality...
the expression on the face of the subject is wonderfully captured...

Awesome line work. When learning to play the guitar my instructor told me that not playing for a day or two can bring new incites into how one approaches playing. I think this follows through with most art forms. So maybe you feel rusty from not sketching but maybe you are improving from where you were before. Not that where you were before was a bad place.:) I find much inspiration from your art; thank you for posting it.

Hi, please tell me how do you transfer a drawing from a paper onto canvas? Do you use the grid or some other mean?

David Malan said...

Thanks all
miljenko, I usually xerox it up to the correct size then tape it down and use transfer paper. Drawing over the lines with blue pen.

Es genial el trazo que posees... tiene la categoría gráfica de artistas como Amsel y Drew.

This is beautiful Dave!

Thanks, David, I guess an extra effort in the initial stage pays off.
