On June 13, Self Portrait #2 I did a computer drawing and stated I liked "real" drawing better. I traced a photo for my computer drawing and it's a personal thing for me. I didn't get the same feeling when I traced the photo. My guts weren't really in the process. I didn't feel like I was really drawing. I want to clarify that I believe that the computer is a valid tool for drawing, and it is just that, another tool such as a pencil, pen or brush.
These are sketches from the NCSFA Sketch and Paint Out. There were 2 of us this time. I had a rectangle of beige on a sketch book page, painted about a month ago - for no apparent reason, This turned out to be a good back drop for the sketch of the pond, hills and houses. I also sketched a few sleeping ducks and just like people, they moved right after I started the sketch!
