RIVERVIEW(2)

Toby















      


Nick.

Not the most revolutionary drawing to look at, but this is one of my favourites of recent weeks.
     I am still striving to get off the symmetry trap that can occur when the subject is facing me.
   Nick turned his head down slightly, and tilted it by the tiniest amount. It must have been only 2 or 3 degrees, but it was just enough to knock it off the vertical and horizontal lines of symmetry.

RIVERVIEW 2009

















Riannon and Louisa.



Anna.

This drawing had unintended (positive) consequences, when Anna produced the huge mane of a ponytail that had previously been obscured from my point of view.
    She draped it over her left shoulder, and all of a sudden, the drawing had rhythm and balance, and was no longer boring and symmetrical. 
     It is certainly something I will be on the look out for, from now on.

OBIT SKETCHES (3)















Another newspaper sketch. It is surprising how much of the text can still be seen, yet doesn't disturb or interfere with the image.

OBIT SKETCHES (2)















This is an example of having additional time to develop the sketch, and move to a second stage. It becomes a caricature of a caricature, and usually produces unexpected results.

OBITUARY SKETCHES


During my recent commute to Waterloo Station every morning, I would use the opportunity to draw whoever appeared on the obituaries page. These sketches were done with ballpoint pen,directly on the newsprint, and the results are featured here. I hope you like them. Ric.
