I've been neglecting to post updates to my 50 day project of 50 figures in 50 days lately. Here are my entries from nos. 21 - 41. I'm almost done!
I am really enjoying my latest project. Drawing people from a distance is surprisingly difficult. I'm finding that I need to be very purposeful with every mark as so few marks are used to convey a person from a distance. Here are my latest entries for my 50 day project of 50 figures in 50 days.
What do you think are the challenges of portraying figures as opposed to portraits or other subjects?
I loved participating in #the100dayproject of drawing/painting 100 portraits in 100 days. I always had a reason to draw each day and a subject using the Sktchy app. I also felt that I needed a lot of practice in drawing faces and people, so doing 100 portraits really helped with that!
Lately, I've been wanting to improve my urban sketching - especially with regard to adding people to my sketches. So, I thought I would participate in another drawing project/challenge - but with a bit shorter duration. So, I decided to create my own #the50dayproject and draw/paint 50 figures in action in 59 days - but using mainly the Sktchy app and its inspiration photos as references. Though, I will keep trying to practice drawing figures from life as well. Here are my first attempts for the project I started on September 1st.
Have you tried any art challenges that you've enjoyed or can recommend?
