Being sketchy? That I can do. But I cannot draw and, well, that’s a wee bit part of being a sketch artist, don’t you think? I absolutely love (perhaps my favorite form?) the look of a black and white sketched piece of art.
Have you seen these sketch kits? I think I paid $4 for it. It’s totally cheating. TOTALLY! But it at least gives me a sense of what it must be like to put pencils to paper and with inexact lines, make a masterpiece.
I forgot to take a Before picture. But if you can tell on the left side, they give you a rough outline of your picture. Then you fill in the details and shading (which I have done on the right…I stopped to take a picture midway)
Who knows, maybe in my cheating, I will learn something about pencils and shading while begging the forgiveness of true artists in the world…
