Drawing with Discipline

Drawing with Discipline
Drawing with Discipline

 

Talent is nothing without discipline. Its rigid discipline and skill that makes a person better artist. It takes a long time and a lot of practice to get good.

 

I’m in my art studio at least 4 to 5 hours five to six days a week. My drawing hand gets tired and sloppy after the fourth hour. I don’t want to get in a hurry just to finish, because I want my work to be its best. I do have family, cooking, and cleaning to take care of too!

Debra,
Loved reading you posts about drawing! I am a pastellist and recognize the many benefits of pencil drawing. Your blog on materials was very helpful. I was surprised you don't use any B pencils. I have subscribed now so I'll look forward to receiving more from you.

Take a look at mine if you care to. www.mikeetieart.blogspot.com
Cheers~

Thank you for your nice complements on my blog.
I looked at your website and enjoyed looking at your pastel paintings. They were very nice.
Sometimes I use B pencils, mostly for quick sketches of drawings a studio model or for a rough sketch.
B pencils have a messy graphite shine that I don't like. The more you press down or layer it, the more it shines and reflects light, which defeats the purpose. Some artists can make it look good, but I'm not one of them.
Hope you have a wonderful day, and I look forward to seeing your commits on future blogs.
Happy Painting,
Debra
