Some sketches from daily observations
How well have you managed to create the sense of a moving figure rather than a static pose?
=> I found this exercise quite difficult and challenging. Perhaps because the figure was moving so fast that I had not much more than a few seconds to depict. Perhaps I focused too much on the figure as such. Somehow I felt entrapped here. I think I just need to work more ‘moving’ as a subject. I tried to go along the contour of movement, leaving rather scribbled and multiple lines behind.
- Moving figures can be quite challenging. What to draw? The figure or the movement? Or both?
- Drawing from life observation or drawing from memory?
- My sketches are rather scribbled sketches going along the moving contour.
– Working more from memory
– Doing some researches on how other artists are doing (example of Francis Bacon comes to my mind, see my research on figurative drawing and at: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/bacon-turning-figure-t07352 ). Although I feel that Bacon’s turning figure is still rather static.
