Lexington Market, Baltimore MD

Demolition began the last week of the most recent market building - the Lexington Market has been doing business on the site for just shy of 250 years.

A new building will go up, they say by mid 2021 - still named the Lexington Market. It will take a decade for the town to get used to the newness of it.

The real history is under the market anyway - elaborate tunnels, from before it was the Lexington, and enlarged over the years.

#DailySketchChallenge Day 16 - Okay, I kind of forgot that I should be practicing today, but I still had enough time for a handful of pose sketches! ^^ mastodon.art/media/jxMFuY5Nr4B

Sketching Study - Week 2

Ready - Fire - Aim
2 of 2

This last week, along with sketching, went through the following tutorial videos:

Drawing Fundamentals: CONSTRUCTION

How to Draw Gesture

How to Draw the Head from Any Angle

PAINT LIKE DEGAS. A tutorial by artist Damian Callan

I'll guess I'll see what if any of that rubbed off later today when I get the sketch pad out and start on week 3.

Study Special - Week 2
Bounding along a self guided path.
Ready - Fire - Aim

OK - 9 reference images I'm using for the study

1st week looked at an image and tried to sketch what I saw (9" x 12" pad) - 1 quick take each
mastodon.cc/media/pLWOmHSuOE-n I needed to work on just getting stuff into the sketch space.

so - Week 2, de-construct, use stick figures only - get all figures into the scene mastodon.cc/media/h-pOPACrRAoy

This week...
1 of 2.

Study Special - Day 13

So, instead of pushing up some sketches (since I haven't done any today) what I will do is share a link to a video (there is a set of four from the author which I'll be watching together) on sketching heads. Practicing the techniques in these videos will base the next round through the group of study images. (will also fill in a bit on the extremities, but focus will be on the head)

#DailySketchChallenge Day 13! I skipped yesterday, but I hope I'll be able to stick to my schedule now. Today I made some more pose studies, some of which may be very helpful for an upcoming painting ^u^ mastodon.art/media/Gms17AZULhK

Study Special - Day 11
(dancers de-construction)

A de-constructed sketch of the first study image, The Dancers.

week 1 was just putting pencil to paper and sketching away.

week 2, today's - well IDK, it's actually closer to the study image overall in layout, but still off on some of the proportions.

Anyway - just one tonight. mastodon.cc/media/6qOqXqRzYpaP

Study Special - Day 10
(dancers de-construction)

pushing on - three more of the study images from the first week week using just stick figures, and again each sketch ended up with more of the original subjects from the study piece in the frame.. I guess that is a good thing.. mastodon.cc/media/nZn3A2dbGiyM

Study Special - Day 8/9
(dancers de-construction)

At the end of week one, a problem was incorrect proportions of the subjects, therefore big portions of the study image didn't get into the sketch..

Suggestion was this stemmed from not constructing the subjects in simple shapes first.. and after watching a couple of videos..

two of last weeks images, as simple shapes.. eight to go.. mastodon.cc/media/3j9LSrJPUATV

Decided to have some fun and do 20 one minute studies via Quickposes.com :D
This is my favorite out of three pages :D

Study Special - Week 1 (dancers)

Started as "I plan to study bodies in motion by sketching dancing and dancers for a week or so." and this is how that has gone so far.

Includes one day 7 sketch UR

hmm - one problem I had all week long is getting the sketch into the frame.. there was supposed to be hands and feet and whole people in those sketches - by I drew what I drew way to big..I'm tempted to run the same cycle anew, IDK yet.
