Drawing Final: Kelly on Her Bean Bag

March 31, 2017

I still need to smooth out and clean up some places, but it’s mostly finished.

Although, you can lighten the drawing with an eraser on this gesso surface, you can’t really erase without smudging the graphite. However, it is possible to lightly scrape off the marks with a sharp knife or razor blade.

New Drawing Started: Kelly on Her Bean Bag

March 29, 2017

This is a new drawing I started of my friend sitting on her bean bag chair. The surface is a small gesso panel, 8.5 x 11″, and I’m drawing with graphite. She had this fuzzy shag carpeting on the floor, so to capture that I decided to brush on some graphite powder with a stiff brush.

New Sketches: At The Airport

March 17, 2017

The airport is a great place to sketch people, especially when there’s bad weather in the North East. You’ll find many stranded passengers stretched out across the lounge chairs trying to catch some shut-eye, making good models for drawing.
