So I really do not like any of the above. But I need to establish a sort of base line in my sketching of figures. These are tiny in my 3 x 5 sketchbook. 05 Micron Pen and some wc and in the second one I used a Sketch and Wash pencil first.
Gestural sketching takes a lot of practice…ya have to start somewhere. My people look "wooden".
Cathy Gatland is who I want to be when I grow up.
Her gestural figures are wonderful.
Look at her wonderful line sketches of people!!!!
I mean they look like "different" people too.
More practice ahead!!!
