So today, complete with new sketchbook (I've got through so many!) and began practising. That is all I did all afternoon, the first attempts were total rubbish, then gradually I started to get the hang of it and felt confident to draw the head in different positions. Got a very long way to go.
In the past I was told to draw an oval shape, then divide it into quarters, it sort of worked. With Loomis, he says to draw a circle, that becomes the cranium, the horizontal line denotes the brown line. Between the brow line and top of circle comes the hairline, same for the nose, using the that measurement, you draw the line for the chin, hack off the sides of the circle, then add the jaw line... Simples!
Also had a health scare. All last week I had numbness, plus a pins and needles like sensation in my head, neck, shoulders and arms. I've had it before but only for short periods, half an hour at most, so this was worrying. I am really suffering with sciatica as well, so I think this is linked to my arthritis. Anyway went to see GP, have to have blood tests, see what they say and go from there. It has now eased off thank goodness, though on Monday while I was out it was really bad in my hands.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
