Sketch, Scavenger Hunt 55

It is a new day! Well, a new Scavenger Hunt, Number 55. EP, eyepaint, is the host. We have 26 new items and some challenges. I have been working on a pastel painting (next post) but for a break, I did a sketch for the Hunt.
#1, Someone reading. That would be Gene. I find several things wrong. His head is too small and it does not look like Gene. The line of the back of the chair coincides with his glasses making it look like the line runs through his head. A big no, no in composition. The chair perspective is bad as well. Otherwise, not so bad. Ha. With a Micron 005 pen in the NY sketchbook. About 15 minutes. No preliminary sketch which I do on purpose to attempt to look well and put down a correct line. You can certainly tell in this sketch that I did not keep to my plan. Lazy.

Dad really does need to work on his posture!

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, Dad says it is not his posture, but my chair or lack of it! All in all a pretty sad sketch.

Oh well,
Mom

Joanna, I do not think it is my posture, I think the artist's perspective on the way I was sitting is way off.

She has never called me a pinhead but I get the message.

Gene, hmmmm.
