Drinking red wine got me feeling like drawing Bukowski. 4b, 6b, 45mins
You’re sooo good at catching expression in your sketches!
Thanks mate. I’m really trying to learn to go hard on the darks. It really helps the image pop out. I didn’t even really draw the features I just focused on the darks – probably standard procedure but I’m new 🙂
Yes, I think you’re right about the contrasts; have black and white (very dark/very bright) somewhere. All grey look washed out and boring anyway. In this sketch, it seems to me that you’ve got dark dark and white in his eyes – which is right where my eyes first go when I look at this. Beyond the contrast, that you (repeatedly, in your sketches) capture the essence in expression is … a skill, a talent, some sort of small miracle ; )
I like it, Buke like puke!
