120522 Tea cup experiments and thoughts

May 22, 2012 | 2 Comments

A dump tonight… I have a few days off sketching and then I have a day when without trying I just seem to be sketching a lot.

This page (yes, more tea cups!) is a record of a couple of experiments I have been doing in the last 36 hours. You all know that I have been using pencil lately…so testing out on tea cups is perfect for me to review approaches. Not sure if the notes make sense….

I know that I should really try to do without my red setup lines… But this recent exercise has reminded me why I do it and how the security blanket of these thinking lines (which I often ignore) give my ink lines so much confidence. Using pencil has merged these two functions and I have found myself doing more sketchy (hesitant) lines with the pencil – this was strange.

All fun… No idea where it will lead me… (I think that I can safely say that I have got myself distracted tonight)

BTW – this page kinda goes from right to left (remember that I am a leftie)

And a ridiculously slap dash sketch before going to the gym tonight…. the main point of this sketch is that it was done in under 10 minutes and it has made me enthusiastic to go to the gym (this is a very worthwhile reason to sketch isn’t it… regardless of the end result!!!)
