Decks Picture Technical Drawing 2

No more life drawing a for a while now so I gotta get my kicks elsewhere.

Making slow progress on my decks paint by numbers. Technical drawings are just not really that much fun when you’re learning software you don’t really got on with in the process… :D

Going to have another bash at the other big painting I started a few years ago but never finished, when I can muster the juices.

More watercolours tonight

Tried to have a crack without outlines on some of them, some people like it, others didn’t… you never can tell.

Last session next week. Still want to do some animation, but I can’t sort out how I’m going to do it – need a flip book from somewhere.

Start of a new big painting

I want to make a nice paint by numbers to keep me busy over the coming months.

I’ve been into hip hop and the turntablism scene for as long as I can remember so I’m nerding out and painting a big, graphic picture of my decks mid-mix.

I’ve started to mock up how its going to look before I start doing any actual measuring and drawing. Sorting the colours and the geeky detail that only proper trainspotting dj’s would get.

Massive nerd out.

Life Drawing 14th May 2015

Watercolours, brush pen and a black Sharpie. As time goes on my flagrant disregard for trying to draw tight pictures grows. And I like it.

Starting to get a ‘little’ bit bored of watercolours already. I’ve got 3 weeks now until the next session so I’m going to have a good hard thunk on what direction to go next. I’m open to suggestions! :D

Life Drawing 7th May 2015

Mixed bag tonight. Mostly pen and watercolours, but I made a schoolboy error not bringing enough watercolour paper, so there’s some conté crayon and black pencil crayon in there too.

Hopefully I’ll have some fun stuff to post next week that’s not my usual life drawing fare… before the life drawing on Thurs. We’ll see how that goes…

Life Drawing 19th March 2015

Had fun tonight, more brush pen and watercolour work. Slightly bigger at A4 size, more confident with stronger colours.

Its the final session of term next week, I’m in two minds whether to carry on with the watercolours or try something completely different and do some animation, live, at life class…
