Sketching Exercises

A while back I was fed up with my tight, fiddly work, so I pinned some very big pieces of paper to an easel and went to work with charcoal or Chinese ink. Putting my shoulder into it felt extremely liberating.

I love the top pigeon, Robyn.

I can just imagine the feeling - and must try it too. Lovely big loose works.

Great stuff - you need to work bigger more often! :)

Love these sketches! It's to get back to something like this now and then, the art equivalent of jumping on a trampoline.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the birds. Personality plus. Beautiful line quality, great gesture.

I'm sorry, it's very rude of me not to have acknowledged all your lovely comments. My excuse was that I was obsessing over a trip to Paris.

Now I'm back and am truly touched and encouraged by all your comments.

Very nice job on the pigeons! They wiggle around so much it's hard to get them but you nailed them.
