Yes folks, that’s what its all about! diligent application of oneself to actually doing art. Not glamorous, but totally essential and, if your heart is in it, actually pretty darn zoney! Today I am feeding my inner portrait/figureatist self with a good old session on a wonderful site I know called “line of action” (this site has been running for a number of years now but up until recently used to be called “Pixelovely”. Great place to go for a quick gesture session, great learning tool, has its own forum and critique section, also great for faces, animals, hands and feet. All you need is a pencil and paper and off you go, tailor your class to suit your time and do remember to keep it all so you can see your progress over time. Personally I favour toned tan paper and sepia and white chalk pencil – to me, that’s the fastest way to get a satisfying, tonal, result. https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/
What’s your favourite way to practice/self teach???
