It finally feels like fall in California. Cold, grey and even a bit rainy. You can tell from my sketches because they move indoors: two coffee shop sketches this week, both at places which are serving coffee in festive red cups. Already??
Oh, and one last piece, a small study of my hand, done as a “notes-to-myself” study of light and shade. I find that drawing+writing notes in longhand is what works best for me when I’m studying. Not typing. Not making mental notes. Actually, physically writing them down, even if I never read them again.
And of course, practice, practice, practice till I learn to see what I’m looking for and draw what I see. What works best for you?
