More about Shapes...

Like I said in this post it's all about Shapes. I'm taking part in Sketchbook Skool and I'm so pleased that this weeks Instructor : Veronica Lawlor has pointed out that Shapes are important.

You don't need a lot of DETAIL, the Shape says it all.  Think about this....have you ever seen an object in the distance and been completely fooled as to what it actually is...I bet it was the Shape that misled your brain into assuming it was something entirely different.

This sketch is a shape...........

(drawn with my Sailor Calligraphy pen, it will give me thin lines and bold ones)
............and your brain works out the rest.

  4. Dear Ann - this shape certainly looks like a doggie to me. Great style. Love the fact that our eye finishes it. Have a divine week-end.

  5. They always say to leave a bit to the viewer's imagination. You did that. Sounds like you are enjoying Sketch Skool!

    1. Yes, the classes are very good. I don't always do all the exercises there and then during the week, but I like to go back over the classes at a later time, so the course lasts as long as I want it to.
