Sleeping co-worker

In an attempt to improve my art, I’m trying to draw at least one thing from life every single day.  I too often fall into the terrible habit of copying things from two-dimensional images.  During a break today, a co-worker so nicely co-operated with me by sleeping right in my line of vision…

For a change, my nearsighted-ness came in handy.  I don’t have to squint to see the values (lights and darks) – I just look over the top of my glasses.  *grin*


Ink:   black waterproof indian-ink Faber-Castell PITT (F) pen first (no rough draft in pencil – you can tell by the wrongly-sized hat, among other things)

Watercolours:  Winsor & Newton Cotman (burnt sienna, ivory black, burnt umber, yellow ochre), Grumbacher’s (indigo hue).

Paper:  Neenah’s Paper Classic Linen (Solar White), though I should’ve probably used watercolour paper instead.  Well, maybe tomorrow.

    You are doing a great job on your drawings and paintinigs. Why don’t you upload more of your daily schetches? I have just started watercolor painting but I find it to be quite a difficult medium, yet very beautiful and challenging.
