Mark who was part of this evenings Clay Chorus group. He played two brilliant songs. I used a bit of monoprint to add shadows to the side of his face. I only used a bit as he was moving and playing his guitar as I was trying to sketch him.
I wish I had his skill and had carried on learning an instrument, it’s great to be able to play things, but my trumpet is staying firmly locked away!
Last year I used to go to to life drawing class on Wednesday evenings. But the winter weather put me off and now I’ve lost the habit because I have been so busy lately. I would love to go back, but it depends on the rest of my life. I enjoy drawing and was going out with urban sketchers too. I need a big wall planner I think!
Anyway I hope you like this drawing of a musician playing his guitar.
My friend asked me to illustrate a few cards for her because she wanted to give them to some friends who have helped her out.
I took photos of various objects in her house, then used washes of acrylic paint and black marker pen to finish them off. I also used a photo of a train in a book as she had specifically asked for a locomotive.
The results are quite sketchy and free, I hope she likes them…
