This is the preliminary sketch. Very gestural. I measure the width and height and location of body parts by using her head length. U can see the purple and red hash marks where I marked it out.
This was at first break. Almost done. What happened?! Left hand looked better here than later.
TIP Bytw I discovered if u paint a triangle for the hand and let it dry. Then laid a pint brush with shadow or background color and use the side of it to paint between the thumb and the forefinger and I get a hand. Works really well and oh so easy.
The rest of the group.
Drew Murphy. Fabulous as always. This is huge but Drews a big guy. 3×4′
And that’s the Saturday roundup.
