This week in art class...

We were learning How to Paint Clouds.  I really like how this has gone so far, though I'm wondering whether to add a dragon or a ship to the image next week.  I want to tidy up the beams a bit too, some of them are too wide or not at the right angle.


I've also taken to doing daily quick drawings from photos at Quickposes - a nifty gadget that throws photos at you and you draw them at top speed - you can choose to do 10, 20, 30 etc images, with intervals from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.  (I haven't dared to try the 30 second option yet!) and is set up to encourage you to do at least 30 mins a day.

It tracks what timed poses you have done if you give it an email address to track. Apparently I have now drawn 949 figures and faces from the point where I started tracking!  I am getting much faster and the percentage of 'unrecognisably horrible' images produced is definitely going down.

Using my new skills, I drew a Thorin.  It did take me more than 2 minutes, but probably not more than half an hour, and it was drawn straight in ink - no pencil lines at all. Yay, I am learning things!

I wouldn't have even noticed the sun ray issues if you hadn't mentioned them. I like that painting.

You are learning things indeed.

I'm glad to know about Quick Poses. I'd like to try it sometime.
