Sketching in Lockdown

Today I started to learn to draw a human head. The lesson was to learn about the shape of the head and where to put eyes, nose ,ears and mouth.

This is my first practice page

Second page: Odd looking Bob is looking at Muriel with lust!!! Muriel is thinking she needs cosmetic surgery.

Tomorrow I will attempt this again.

I am having so much fun 😂😂😂

    1. Thanks Christine for your good advice. My art lessons give instructions of how to divide the face into sections, I am also looking in magazines and family photos. Lessons coming up are how to draw the eyes, nose, ears and mouth. I am feeling well today so I will be back onto to it today 👂👃👄👀👍🙂xx


      1. Christine as trained artist when learning something new do you use scrap paper or use store bought sketching paper ? I have got A6, A5 and A4 sketching pads and visual diary….what would you recommend? Xx


      2. I used to draw on cheap sketchpad, the ones that are about A4 and A3. I chose the ring bound ones with floppy cardboard backs because they are cheap and you can fill them up. I used to use a drawing board behind them to stop them bending too much.. Or I even used printer paper. My mom used to bring me the sort with perforated edges home when I was a kid… Also don’t draw flat, prop the picture up on an easle. If you lay it flat you will find the image is longer because of foreshortening

      3. Thanks Christine for your helpful advice. Yesterday I used printer paper taped on a board and even though I have the easel sitting there I did it flat. Today I will prop it on the easel. I just found an A3 visual art diary xx
