Hello and welcome to Susan's Scribbles. I have been enjoying other art blogs for many months and am just finally getting this one set up. I will start by showing some of the things I have been working on lately. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments.
These three sketches were inspired by the group Classical Figure Drawing. I joined this group in hopes that I could overcome my fear of drawing people! I need a great deal of practice but am pleased with the results so far.
I will post some leg studies a bit later. As time goes by the group will be doing studies of various areas of the body and, in time, I hope to be much more comfortable with it. One of the biggest benefits I can see already is that these exercises are forcing me to really look and "see" what I am drawing, as opposed to drawing what we think we should see.
One last quick piece for today. This is a quick watercolor of my boys. They were working on their own artwork while we were vacationing in Eureka, California, last summer.
Thanks for stopping by!
