the line it is drawn

There is not a great deal of drawing going on at the moment. I'm still wiped out after the last one. And still no colour. I do, however, have a pile of half finished drawings that seems to be growing all the time. Thought I'd finish one today. This one.

Everyday Matters #17, draw a musical instrument.

Very cool indeed. Finish off those drawings - or at least show us the half-finished drawings?

Great strings-especially the one facing toward the viewer-that angle is a tough one.

I love looking at everything on your sketchblog-especially the older stuff I never saw when it was originally posted. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Jennifer Lawson said...

Love the way you cropped the instrument.

What an interesting viewpoint!! Love those strings.

That's a very sweet one. Some people like to cut their strings at the end there, but i like twirling them just like that.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with a pile of half-finished drawings sitting around their house (stuffed in their bag, under the bed...) I often wonder how is it I am so great at starting something new, and not so great at finishing anything? especially lately...

You were certainly great at finishing one of yours tho - simply beautiful. And I LOVE those curly guitar strings!!

Wow! Gorgeous!

Super drawing and curved lines are more interesting than straight lines on the page. Musical instruments have great shapes to draw, especially the strings.

Thank you all folks. I definately had doubts about posting this. There is something wrong with it but I can't put my finger on what. It just looked like such a good subject. Especially those twirly strings.

Lots more halfifnished drawings, but they usually are half finished for a reason - they are no good. God, I'm the worse self-critic.

Thank you all.

Very clever drawing - it has an almost abstract quality. I love the way the strings curl round, giving movement to the piece.

Are we not our own worst critiques? For us novices, your work is compelling and striking. Even your not-so-finished work is a masterpiece for those of us who are striving to get better at our craft. Keep up the great work!

My eye cannot see whatever wrong thing is troubling yours. (That's probably why I can't draw like this!)

And finished schminished. I'd love to see the unfinished stuff!
