My first outing to the Hollywood Bowl. I was led to believe the ‘X’ in the sky indicates a no fly zone, so that helicopters would not ruin the concert. It worked, for the most part.
Pen-and-ink surfaces take a long time to draw. In this sketch I did not draw lines, but rather used shading to create surfaces.
I don’t remember the point of this practice exercise. It couldn’t have been faces exclusively since two are hidden. Maybe it was a combination face practice and composition design. I was getting better at facial proportions in this sketch.
Instead of using a permanent-ink pen in this sketch I used one with water-soluble ink. I doused a bit of water on the furry bits of the cat (depicted in the drawing) to get the wash effect.
I like the clean lines of this practice page.
