Sketchbook Revival: Day 9 Session 2

WOOF!

This was a wonderfully taught session by Barbara Baumann (baumann-illustration.at) entitled “Drawing Dynamic Dancers with Ink and Watercolor”

Dynamic was the word of the day, and Barbara’s technique is all about dynamic and fast pencil marks, pen marks and playful color.

I didn’t nail a single part of the tutorial. Flamed out in glorious fashion.

“Nan, whhhhyyyyy would you share this with us???”

Because the true nature of the world and our experience on it involves a lot of failure. I’m not willing to share all my failures…I’m a bit sensitive about some of them. This one, though, is too bad not to be shared. It’s a clunker…a real dog…WOOF!

This tutorial has shown me an area I can work on to see if there is improvement. Barring an improvement in my technique, I will have gained a deeper understanding, appreciation, and respect for what artists like Barbara Baumann achieve.
