Over the last few years, I’ve set myself many challenges as ways to keep my practice going.
This page is currently undergoing an overhaul and will be ready soon. But in the meantime, please have a look at these two categories of drawing posts:
Still Life Drawings. This was value study project in which I set myself to do 100 still life value studies. Many of the drawings linked to from that page are mini-blog posts with them, write ups of what I was thinking – and learning – as I was working on them.
Bargue Drawings. Studying Bargue drawing had a great and positive influence on my drawing and painting. It taught me to slow down, and to look properly. If you’re an artist, and you don’t know what I mean when I say that, you need to find a way to slow down and look properly. I’m serious.
