I am very interested in butterflies now that I’m in an area that has a wide assortment. I’ve been wanting to sketch one but, I have been a little intimidated by all of the detail. This one is unfinished. I still have the daisy on which it sits to finish along with the rest of the background. I told my 8 year old daughter she could have it since she’d been eyeballing it all night.
As one of the assignments, it’s unfortunate that I had to attempt to draw myself. It official, I will never have a job working as a sketch artist for the police. I find it incredibly difficult to draw people. I’ve always been in awe of people who could not only draw a likeness of someone, but to be able to capture the personality as well. So far, the only thing that I really captured in my sketch was my snotty little smirk, everything else is questionable.
Sketch #5 I have been instructed to do a quick drawing of an interior scene with the lines going to the end of the paper. I did get a smudge on the bottom, so I cropped that out, but this is the gist of a corner of my living room. Looks very cartoony, lol.
Sketch #4 I have been instructed to draw a small object. I don’t think I’m supposed to use shading yet, but I was bored, so I figured, why not.
This is Sketch #3 and I must say that I definitely bit off more than I could chew with my subject choice. With no use of tools like a ruler or protractor, I had no business trying to knock out a fence. By the time I had finished the fence, the sun had already moved and the lighting had changed. Then there is all of the leaf detail. I simply had to drop the pensil and walk away from this one or I would have spent hours on end. Next time I will focus something smaller so I can work more on shading and less so on details.
