Drawing makes the commute much easier to cope with. This sketch of Churchill was done mostly on the train in about 3.5 hours.
Another of my sketches of historical figures. This time David Lloyd George (British prime minister during the first world war) I drew on the train.
I find trees a great subject to sketch, they're full of character but stand very still for you. This is the first time I sketched out in public and was at Christchurch Meadow in Oxford.
I'm studying classical drawing so I'm following the techniques taught in the atelier schools. This was fairly sketchy for a Bargue Plate not using much measuring at all.
Sphere studies are great for practicing light and shading. Sphere studies are very unforgiving as there is little to no detail to cover any mistakes. I think it makes good practise to draw them freehand.
The task was drawing very quick interpretations of a human skull. The skull was rotated by the tutor every 5 mins. I drew this one upside-down and was surprised to see how it looked once it was rotated.
