The Drawing Room
Topic: Drawing

When we were in Los Angeles last year we spent a couple of hours at The Getty Center and wished we had much more time there. So, earlier this week, we made time for it and flew down to spend two days viewing all the artwork on display.

What a treat! There is something magical in standing in front of a painting of irises by Van Gogh, a sculpture by Degas, a landscape by Monet... To see the brushstrokes, fingerprints in the paint, chisel marks of a master - it is almost overwhelming.

One small section of the museum is an area called The Drawing Room in which a small-scale statue, a couple of marble busts and several paintings are displayed. There are benches with built-in easels around the room and you are provided with paper, a large clipboard and a packet of drawing materials.

With these supplies you can sit and draw - with the sculptures and paintings as inspiration. What Fun!

I selected one of the busts and drew in sepia conte crayon. Here is my model:


And here is my finished work - about 1/2 hour of time invested:


For anyone who desires, they will put your work up on the bulletin board. Thus one can say they have work hanging in The Getty!

All Tied Up In Knots
Topic: Drawing

I had some questions on another forum on how I drew the knots in the fish net on this page:


So I decided to put together a short tutorial for everyone.








If you're going to draw elements behind the net, do so now before you go on to the coloring. Otherwise, the coloring could be rubbed away when erasing the pencil sketch lines for the fish or whatever is filling your net.

To color the net:



Yeah, I didn't erase my pencil lines before coloring on this tutorial - but you will do that!

All Drawn Out
Topic: Drawing

I have been doodling for as long as I can remember. It got me in trouble when I was in grade school as I used to use up my tablets with doodles instead of with my practice of printing and arithmetic.

In class lectures in high school and college I had just as many doodles in the margins as I had notes. Fortunately, I could look at what I had drawn and remember what the teacher had been talking about.

Later, sermon notes included many little designs that later became cards or scrapbook page sketches. 

I am not one to carry a sketchbook along with me (just one more thing for an already heavy purse) so I don't sketch much 'on the fly'.

I do have a sketch pad that I can use when I intentially sit down to do some doodles, though.

I use an eversharp number 2 pencil because I can't stand the way regular pencils get dull so fast. I use a Mars eraser as it is easy on the paper surface. 


When I have a doodle or sketch I like I use permanent marker to ink it and then erase the pencil lines.

These get clipped out and filed for future reference.

After refining further, they might be turned into a sketch for a card, a rubber stamp to carve, or a watercolor design.
