After high school I went to OCAD in Toronto
for a couple of years. And at the time line was
a major feature of portrait and figure drawing. Our
life drawing classes were based on methods
revived during the Renaissance.
Currently what I love is attempting to draw quick
sketches using just line. I do love line drawings
and have so many heroes in that type
of art. Here are my sketches from the market today,
which unlike the hospital waiting room, was wild and
quick with people sitting down and dashing through.
to buy produce, go skating, or meet a friend.
I had a tiny sketchbook in my purse, and tried to catch
as much as I could in the snatches of time that people
stayed in one place.
A little preparation, and
another line drawing of tulips.And on the Valentine scene, I painted some paper
this gorgeous red, and tried to remember how to
make a string of hearts something else I love.
Have a loving beautiful line day
