Rebecca
Thank you for the compliments! There is some truth to your observations of my work as far as not rushing into it. I know that I'm slow but i'm fine with that because I feel like as long as I keep working and don't give up on the piece I will eventually pull it out. It doesn't matter if I spend 10+ sometimes! I also know that the more I practice the faster things will come. Maybe I will try to show some WIP of my next drawings.

Dbclemons,
I've heard them called that also. I usually hear the term Tortillon to refer to the smaller size stumps that are usually hollow in the middle.

jinnseng,

Slowness is not a bad word in my dictionary. I like quality over quantity, and it's refreshing to see your work.

I think you would really enjoy looking at some of the Dutch masters like Vermeer and still life painters of that era. I have spent a lot of time in the National Gallery of Art in DC ogling these amazing oil paintings and wishing that I had been a Dutch male painter back then, lol! You might want to invest in one or two good art books of Still Lifes, as it is amazing how quickly one can forget great works of art. Art books will last you a lifetime, and are a much better reference visually than the web.

Cheers!

Okay okay Here's a couple pencil sketches from not too long ago. The hands are my own. The face is the actor Robert Morley from "Beat the Devil." I like to freeze a DVD frame to sketch expressions and poses.




One of my favorite still life painters is a Frenchman, Jean Chadin.

David,

Great! I knew we could shake a few drawings out of you. These are cool ~ do you mean Chardin? 17th century ish? Pheasant pictures and such? Yep, he's amazing!

Thanks for posting these. Feel free to post more...

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Oops, yes that "Chardin." And also Fantin Latour. I remember seeing a show at the San Francisco Museum of Modert Art that was all about Dutch still life paintings. It was phenomenal.

David,

Why not do a master copy of one of these paintings and post it here in the Master Copies thread?

warpyy,

Keep going, on your next foot drawing, try to not have any distractions...feet are tough, and require your attention. They're needy like that.

I'm a big fan of Albrecht Durer... his shading skills were great!

Hey Rebeccsa as promised I am posting a couple of pencil drawings I did today for this thread.
The funny thing is that I have not drawn with pencils for years so it was fun.

Also I am adding an ink drawing
of a place here in DC you might recognize.
