Sketches on the bus in January XI and a menu of freestyle heads
These sketches were done today and the menu of heads at a conference meeting I attended.
The free style heads are done more with a technique that I would say has improved my sketching the most over the years- it is called the "Blind Contour"- it is achieved by not looking at what you are sketching but just focusing on the subject and drawing the contour of the subject to the best of your ability and not letting your hand leave the paper! It works like magic! I think it trains the eyes-hand co-ordination which is so vital to sketching!
