Unposted sketches

These are a few sketches from my absence that I didn’t get to post on here. I was posting on instagram for a bit to try and keep myself going. I mentioned on there that sketching was basically all I seemed to be able to churn out. I’m working on getting out of that funk though, so, soon I’ll be experimenting with colour again and also fleshing out some rougher sketches (like the ones below).

  1. ‘Girl looking back’ is my absolute favorite.

    I look at the difference between male and females when you sketch and they so different things to me. The female sketches appear vulnerable, playful, sensual at times. The males feel confident, You’ve got their heads looking up in two of them. I really enjoy looking at them.

    One of the hardest things for me to draw is a head looking up. I also need work on profile drawing. I keep a collection of art references on my Pinterest page with the idea of spending a little more time on correcting some of my angles.

    Your work is wonderful.

    Ps. I had an art sale a bit ago and used some of the flowers I purchased from your etsy shop. I gave you credit for it. Credits and such appear at the bottom of the entry.
    The flowers look great. I really like them.

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback on these, Faith. I so appreciate it!

      I know what you mean about getting head angles to look right; most times I have to spend aages working on a single drawing, but whats great is when it feels like its becoming more natural after a while. The bit about keeping references on Pinterest is something I try to do as well (great minds think alike 😉 hehe) – but Pinterest has a way of stealing my attention all too easily so I try to use it with a sketchbook at hand! 😀

      The flowers do look good – I love how you’ve used them. Thank you so much for the link-love on your special sale! 😀

    1. Not at all! Too often I can’t be bothered tbh but sometimes its so therapeutic and other times feels so much like ‘accomplishing something’ that I just get lost in it… Thank you, though – I’m so glad you think these are nice! 😀

    1. I have heard of intuitive painting but haven’t tried it, not wholly at least… the idea is quite daunting to me. But this link you’ve sent is quite inspiring, (I’ve started following on instagram :D). Is it yours by any chance?

    1. I’m delighted to hear that, thank you 🙂 but in all honesty I don’t believe there’s a single person in the world who ‘can’t draw’ 😉 it’s not as tricky as it seems at first!

      1. I’m so glad you’ve found ‘your thing’- too few people do these days! It would be challenging for me but I’m certain its lots of fun too (if the delicious looking art on your blog is anything to go by! :D)


    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to give that bit of advice, Nitesh, I really appreciate it – looking back at the sketch now; I do see it could do with a bit more ‘pop’ in values – especially the highlights as you say. I’ll keep this in mind in my future attempts. 😀 Thanks again!
