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.
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
https://mastodon.cc/media/pLWOmHSuOE-nabqMXFc 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 https://mastodon.cc/media/h-pOPACrRAoyCiSj6Rc
1 of 2.
Sketching is a 'practicing art' after all, isn't it and it's been quite a while since I did much of it. So, repetition of basics is the order of the day for me.
And then there is the old saying, misery loves company ;-)
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)

Study Special - Day 11
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. https://mastodon.cc/media/6qOqXqRzYpaPoHBKnT4

Study Special - Day 10
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.. https://mastodon.cc/media/nZn3A2dbGiyMZ2_DHWY
Study Special - Day 8/9
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.. https://mastodon.cc/media/3j9LSrJPUATVAs3qJOc
Decided to have some fun and do 20 one minute studies via Quickposes.com :D
This is my favorite out of three pages :D
"construction first?", no I did not.
Made a couple of aspect lines on about half of them and that was it - then off to the races drawing the subjects.
Thanks, I think I have a plan for the this week, and it will include cycling back through the same subject images.
I say stuff, paint stuff, and then there is life..
