Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: All Straight LinesWithout proper instructions or guidelines, life drawing sessions can easily become boring and repetitive, with little to no progress in understanding the process. Once in a while, I try to apply some techniques learned along the way. This is one of them. The last time I applied the technique was through instructor Paul Wee at LAAFA. A great life drawing teacher from the world of animation. It is as simple as it sounds. Only allow yourself to draw with straight lines. I know, I know, i dedicated an entire post to “No Straight Lines”. I mean “kinda straight” here. It’ll help you tremendously in finding angles and planes throughout the body. Curves and shading can easily muddle a drawing and make it too tentative. Lines and angles have a strong opinion about them. They are very definitive. Your confidence will only grow once you go back to “full” life drawing. Have fun!Norm

BEST SELFIE EVER?!

This selfie was talked about yesterday. Looks a bit safer than some over the last three days.

Exemplary work - safe distance from the riders, and brilliantly framed too.

That’s what makes bikes so frightening: we prefer the devil we know, even when it’s infinitely more bloodthirsty than the one we don’t.
