Mug Shots Over A Cup of Tea: Daily Art Practice
It is definitely starting to feel like winter here. One week the temperatures were 70 degrees and this week the wind is biting, and it is in the 30’s with a predicted snowfall. I usually love winter but I like to ease into it. The trees are becoming more bare but that means we can see more of the mountains. Here is another morning view
Daily Art Practice
While I have been experiencing artist block, I didn’t want to stop making art completely, so I kept up with my mug shot sketching. I got this fabulous book from the library that has mug shots from as far back as the early 1900’s. Some of them are very unique and make great subjects for sketching.
This next layout is a study of sketches from the following books. I am working on how to make quick sketches that get the point across with minimal detail and color. This is really hard for me as I tend to overdue things, forgetting that “less is more.” Both of these books are great, especially the one by John Muir Laws.
Happy Tea Day,
