Around the neighbourhood
She loves to draw, she loves to eat out (I suspect her being french), and mixes both in her tumblr. drawingtableforone just published a note about the way she
works draws. As the sketches she usually does, it’s clever, clear, and instructive.
A couple of folks have asked me how I start my drawings. First I look at the space, drop a few key lines on the “page” to get the perspective and proportions right (or as right as I can get them) and then let the rest of the drawing flow. I must confess that I use the eraser and the “rewind” feature quite a bit but my goal is not to draw the perfect drawing. I usually start with the ink pen and then use the fountain pen for a heavier line weight/contrast. Here’s an image of my Cafe Rabelais drawing before I added color.
