Hello Sketchbookers, Diana here with a little bit about my process and my first drawings.
The way I work in a sketchbook is by letting my pen(cil) ride with my eyes. Freely finding its way.
Keeping the line moving. Loosely. That is the way I find the gesture in a pose so it feels alive. My little wooden articulated figure is very good to have. Art supply stores always carry them too.
You must find your own way. Are you a restless soul, like me? Are you more precise? This is when you begin to find out. There is a broad array of processes presented to you here. I hope that you'll try them all out. See how they fit. What feels "right"?
In the coming months these first drawings will be refined, redrawn and remembered. And so, yes, I do these first drawings joyfully: these are the beginning steps in this voyage.
Here is a preliminary value sketch for a painting(s) in process right now.
