Sketching

It is always good to sketch different subjects to help improve your drawing skills.

Bodies are a great subject as the have numerous positions they can change to. Still life is limited but is really good to use to understand light and dark and shade. Bodies present you with a fresh challenge each time!

I am thinking of starting a sketch Club where once a week I pose a subject to sketch, then whoever takes part has there sketches posted here on the weekly sketchclub post, so that we can learn from each and encourage each other. What do you think? Would you take part?

Steve, I think a sketch club is a good idea as I need all the help I can get? If you start one count me in. Regards.

A sketch club sounds like a lot of fun. I'd be in like Flinn.

I'll join in but what style are we doing?

I haven't done cartoon style and have no idea where to start

We shall be sketching from life looking at the body, still life and nature. We shall explore shapes that resonate through all these different elements. This will help our drawing skills that in turn will help whatever style each of us work in!
