D L Friedman :: Artist :: Fine Artwork :: Drawings and Paintings, Bird Drawings • ❃ • ❋ • ❁ • tanglebucket • ✿ • ✽ • ❀ •: For my fellow tangle junkies: some thoughts on collecting and organizing tangle patterns I'm a perfectionist. I didn't always know this about myself, or maybe I wasn't always one and I'm just settling into my own shoes a little as I get older. But "ehh.... good enough" is probably not something you'll hear me say. Because if I'm working on something I care about, and I know it's not the best I am capable of, I have to force myself to not redo every little thing and make it as good as I know it could be (and yes, I do realize that this occasionally makes me a little bit annoying). For example, I've attempted a few methods for collecting and organizing tangle patterns... index cards, flip cards, graph paper pads, Moleskine notebooks, different-sized journals, a small binder with page protectors, et cetera. First I had to let go of the idea that any journal I created would/could ever resemble Maria's... that just wasn't realistic for me. Here's how my lofty standards and I arrived at a solution I could run with. This beast of a craft punch came from Michael's. The bottom view.

Drawing Realistic Tiger With Pencil-Eyes » OnlyPencil Drawing Tutorials The eyes are the most important part of any pencil drawing. I believe its the part that you must dedicate the most time to. Without the eyes there is no life in the drawing. The secret to making realistic eyes are the subtle details that most us don’t see. Before i start the eyes on a drawing, i look at many reference photos to understand what i will drawing. Lets look at the image above to get understand what we will be drawing.

Les crayons de couleur de Patrick Rogelet Introduction Le crayon de couleur : dessin ou peinture ? Le crayon de couleur, cet objet connu de tous, que nous utilisons avant même la maternelle, semble n’avoir plus aucun secret pour chacun de nous. Si je devais le comparer à un instrument de musique, ce serait le piano. Le problème, et pour continuer dans cette image du piano, c’est que pour le crayon de couleur, on en est resté à la main droite en ignorant la gauche. Le système des hachures est une espèce de trompe l’œil car il n’y a pas véritablement mélange des couleurs au niveau de la matière. À ce niveau le mélange de la matière est comparable à celui d’une peinture à l’huile, à la différence que l’action se produit directement sur l’œuvre et non pas au préalable sur une palette. Pour l’instant, dans le monde des peintres aux crayons de couleur, je me sens bien seul.

a little lime: poppies & leaflet pattern The kids and I made it through our volunteer event last week - cooking for 45 people! Fortunately we had 2 helpers (including my son) which made a huge difference and kept my stress levels just under the highly dangerous zone! We got rave reviews, and all I can say is I'm glad it's over and I can concentrate on drawing again :) This weekend I finally got around to drawing out a pattern inspired by what looks like a wood carving (though it looks to perfect to be hand-carved). I've had it pinterest board for a while - the actual pin is a dead link, but you can see the image from my board here - I love it, such beautiful flow from one section to the next - I couldn't get quite that look, maybe with more practice :) I have dubbed the pattern "leaflet". More poppies! The pattern step out: I found it a really forgiving pattern - it didn't matter if my curves lined up exactly at the start, or if some of my s strokes were a bit off (my concentration has a tendancy to wander!) hx

Croquis d’étude Désireuse de me lancer à nouveau dans une petite nature morte, j’ai réalisé ce croquis d’étude pour plusieurs raisons. La première était de dessiner correctement mon sujet d’après nature, la seconde d’étudier les ombres et la lumière que l’on voit sur l’objet, la troisième de me rendre compte de ce que pourrait être le tableau final. Nature blanche L’ arrière plan est foncé car je voulais le peindre ainsi et cela me permet de me rendre compte de l’effet. Finalement j’ai modifié les éléments de ma peinture, je vous en parlerai plus tard. ;) Je l’ai baptisée nature blanche car les objets sont blancs mais en réalité ils comportent une superbe variété de gris et de blanc. Encore un sujet à s’arracher les cheveux ! Mine de plomb 2B sur carnet de croquis. Dimensions 13 x 18 cm Like this: J'aime chargement…
