Sunday Portraits/ Retratos de domingo.

Portraits. Retratos.

Usually I meet on Sundays with a drawing group to do portraits. We meet in a different place each week and ask people to pose for us for 15 minutes each. It´s a fun way to practice and see how each one of us works and solves each person as well as trying different techniques, materials, papers… My last portraits are being done with pencil first and then with ink, just simplifying and working with clean lines. Today I had the models just in front of me and even though i prefer them at three quarters, this is what I got. The objective is to draw,draw, draw!

Normalmente suelo quedar los domingos con un grupo de dibujantes para hacer retratos. Solemos cambiar de sitio cada semana y pedimos a la gente que pose para nosotros durante quince minutos cada uno. Es una manera divertida de practicar y ver las diferentes soluciones a las que llega cada uno probando diferentes técnicas, materiales,  papeles… Mis últimos retratos están siendo realizados con lápiz primero y luego con tinta, simplificando y trabajando la línea limpia. Hoy los modelos me tocaron bastante de frente, y aunque los prefiero de tres cuartos es lo que tocó. La cuestión es dibujar, dibujar,dibujar!
