little domestic scenes

I was trying to draw without using pencil or erasing, and just living with the slight distortions. I think I'm usually too careful when I sketch, so I miss some of the fun mistakes.

I really like these, Sarah. There's something solid here, that's really working.
I like drawing in a similar style but I find that the 'hard part' is drawing out of my head this way - normally it works best when I'm drawing FROM something. That's just a thought, though - don't mean to put you off this vein of exploration. The drawings are looking really good.

Thanks, Ellen! Maybe I should try doing it out of my head and see what happens. You're right, I'm not sure I could get the life drawing elements (like the knee on the far left) without looking at something.

I'm not sure I made much sense in my last post! I just wish I had a model around all the time, is all.

Oh, these are just GORGEOUS!!! I always marvel at the clean lines in your work, and wonder whether you erase at all. I frequently rub a hole right through the paper before I get it right. IF I get it right...

Yeah, I usually sketch and sketch and erase and erase, but I thought I'd give it a whirl, just drawing straight in ink and hoping for the best. Often the figure would extend off the paper, even if I started the right size, or the picture would look very distorted and grotesque, but the grotesque bits were kind of interesting. I'm not sure I could work this way for commissioned pieces, but it might at least give me ideas for them.

Wow Your drawings are wonderful from the talk. I recognize most but in particular Ann Hewson!

I wonder if this will reach you and I have got the hang of livejournal.

Thanks, Belinda! (And I think you're getting the hang of it!)
