Warm-up

Here's a collection of warm-ups done before work. The drawings are in chronological order. At first I thought about just drawing only black and white sketches but when I realized that I can do that under 3 - 5 minutes, I thought of trying to paint over the sketches. I don't paint that much at all so I thought it would be nice to practice it during warm-ups. 

There are lots of ups and downs in these sketches. You can tell when I knew exactly what I was drawing and when I was struggling. I learned that one of my bad manners is that I keep drawing way too many details even though it isn't really needed. This happens especially with simple subjects where details are not necessary. I have to avoid this because that's often my downfall in my drawings. Pay more attention, observe and keep things simple. 

Photo references from Google were used in all of them.

The blog will be on hiatus for the next 3 weeks so don't expect anything new for a while!
