Over-Tired and Out of Practice

I'm trying to get better at drawing again. My standards have slipped since I kept missing life drawing sessions for one reason or another, but I'm trying to get back into the habit of it.

Also, I've never really mastered the tonal qualities of watercolours, and have been really inspired by David Mack's sketches lately, so I've been having a go at that too.

There are a few things wrong with this, but I thought it may get worse as I tried to make it better - that's often the case with life drawing!
(I did stupidly overpowering hair in ink, hence why the face has been cut out and stuck onto a fresh sketchbook page.)


I've also been spending time enjoying the peace of the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester. I sat and happily drew for quite a while, listening to Jason Webley.

The following was a very enjoyable pencil scribble from Judith Duffey's knitted wonder, 'Sheep in Wolf's Clothing'.



ALSO - EXCITING NEWS FOR THE CONSEQUENCES COLLECTIVE! Our proposed group exhibition has been approved by Woodend Creative space in Scarborough so we shall hopefully be exhibiting there in the future.
