I had quite an active day again today but not so much artistically this time. I meant to bring my sketchbook with me to the beach. Really, I did! But I didn’t. I left it behind in the car. So instead of sketching on the beach I just enjoyed the sand and the fresh air and the sunshine and the sound of waves. Yeah, I don’t so much regret that part. I did see some people who would have been fun to draw though. Oh well, I’ll just have to try to remember my sketchbook again next time I make it to the beach.
Anyway, since I missed the perfect opportunity for some more life drawing practice I had to settle for another random photo from Something To Draw. This one was submitted by Jürgen Katzengruber. It’s a pretty nice action pose. I had a lot of fun with this one. The muscles were really well defined in the photo and it’s a pretty interesting perspective. I think between this and yesterday’s life drawings I’m beginning to gain a better grasp on anatomy. Of course I should probably still put a bit of study into it at some point. In the meantime this was a pretty fun way to practice though.
