Quick Sketching – Short Poses
I have chosen Pose #6 for todays drawings. They are all short poses, from 1 to 10 minutes. Quick sketching is the warm up process. Usually done on newsprint paper, the model does a series of one minute poses for a 20 minute session. Then we move on to do 5 to 20 minute sketches.
Art Materials Used
The Paper : I love colored paper. My favorite paper is, Canson Mi-Teintes Drawing Papers and Pads. My favorite color is Moonstone. Most art supply stores carry this paper, and I buy it online at Dick Blick Art Materials.
The Media: 6B Soft Pencil, Sketching Pencil 5, Soft Charcoal Pencil, Blunt Soft Pastel, Pointed Stump. Note: I DO NOT USE AN ERASER in quick sketching. The history of my marks are recorded and stay where I made them. For blending purposes, I sometimes use a kneaded eraser.
One minute warm-up drawing is from the first 20 minute session.
Reminder: I am using Painter 11 and doing all of this drawing digitally. There is no difference for me between doing this directly on paper, or directly on my Wacom Cintique. It’s my hand that is drawing.
Set a timer and join in. Meet you here same time next week.
