Over the weekend I decided that I needed to start drawing finished things on a regular basis. For a while I did these observational drawings in undergrad and had continued to do them every so often in grad school but eventually stopped . But since I have used the observational drawing as an assignment in a College Life Drawing class that I am teaching , I feel the need to restart the practice (plus I'll only get better) . These things demand a lot of concentration and editing since thy are just straight pen and ink with no underdrawing. Funny thing is for a time I though my old undergrad teacher Alberto Rey was the only person who did them. But after some looking, I came to find there are a ton of artists that do them , one of my favorite being bad ass Illustrator Tin Salamunic. Anyways more to come soon !
