Woof

Copyright Jennifer Rose Phillip

One green horse finished. I haven't yet decided that my style loosening up due to college is a good thing or a bad thing. On the one hand I am a lot quicker, but on the other its really really scribbly :p

Blog friend Leslie sent me this drawing of Luka :D I love it, just need to find a frame now and hang it on the wall.

I am so glad its the weekend soon. Need to sleep in for a few hours and then get caught up on some drawing. Well thats the plan. Things seem to have the habit of changing....

Love the green horse, and what a beautiful portrait of Luka!!!
'Woof' just makes me think of Rik Mayall in Blackadder!!!

I really love the horse! Especially the colour!

I know what you mean about loosening up. I'm much quicker than I was a year ago, but that doesn't necessarily pay off in the type of art I do. Minute details are what my stuff is about. Hard to do quickly!

Thanks for posting Luka!
Glad he is where he belongs!

I admire the more loose style for sketching and wish I could do it. Any tips? I have the same problem as Sandy...painting realism makes it hard to loosen up because I'm so used to getting down to nitty-gritty detail. That's why I started my quick sketchbook entries as I'm hoping they will help me to loosen up and not be so pedantic.

Luca is gorgeous! I didn't know you had a dog? Or was he a family pet you once had? Maybe you mentioned him previously on your blog and I've forgotten...my mind is like a sieve at times.

thanks cindy :)hubby had to look up a clip for me with rik mayall as i had no idea was funny lol

sandy, thank you :) no it doesn't help with a realistic style. hmm needs to be a way to combine the 2

thanks again leslie! :D *big hugs*

serena, hmm timing myself helped get looser sketches. wouldn't spend more then 5 mins on complex things. means you have to focus on the most important things and only draw those lines. had a dog :( he is still alive but back in canada. hope to get another one once we have the time and money for one :)

Loosening up is great. If you like the style, you can continue developing it, if not, it will at least help you speed things up. It's always good to stretch a little.

Another beautiful sketch. Love the dog picture too.

Haha, I laugh, I am soooooooo trying to loosen up a bit with watercolour. You seem to be doing very weel, your horse has a lot of movement :)
Great portrait from Leslie, very lovely, he is beautiful

ingrid, a stretch is helpful. i think i need to draw a few more pieces like this before I figure out if i like it or not :)
