Default Sketches

10 Minute Sketches

This is from a series of sketches that I've been doing over the last year or so. I find a photo on the Internet and set my screen saver for ten minutes. I then sketch my impression of the photograph before the screen saver comes on. Some are an exercises in realism, some are more impressionistic.

I've done several hundred sketches of various subjects.
I use the back of some old forms we no longer use at work, so it's a good way to recycle. You can see some of the lines on the form showing through from the back.

Those look really good. The eyes seem enhanced...is that on purpose? I wish I could draw/sketch/paint like that.

I have had the book for years... and opened it on a few occasions.... but my daughter, Haley, who is an incredible artist could not really get into it..

I havent got any pics of my sketches, in fact its been years since I have sat and sketched. I will have to look for my old portfolio and see if there is anything there worthy.
