Park - more dads, originally uploaded by apple-pine.
One of the best things I can do as a warm-up when I start sketching is pick someone on a swing and give them a couple of pages of attempts :) Results are usually not postable :) But they get me rolling :)
So when you get someone who is gently and very slowly pushing his toddler - it's hard not to sketch them properly ;)
This dog (below, right) was a monument. This is the only reasonably sketch of it that I have. But not because dog was moving too fast - it's the man who was with her (I do not thing it was her master) - he kept running around her so quickly it was hard to get anything but the tail right ;)
I love those sketches. No need to apologize for the dog; you saw what you saw. If the weather gets better over here, I will try some plein air drawing myself.ReplyDelete
thanks Rene! And good luck with the plein air - hope weather cooperates :)ReplyDelete
