"For thus says the Lord: Lo, I will spread prosperity over her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing torrent. As nurslings, you shall be carried in her arms, and fondled in her lap; As a mother comforts her son, so will I comfort you..." Isaiah 66:12-13

Summer Drawing Pictures Share #2.

Posting this a bit late since we were camping last week, and I chose to pack instead of posting photos of the drawings. Jim hasn't tried them yet, but I'm hoping he'll find some time this week to catch up.

First, the girls drawings.

 My assistant.

 Amelia's vase. She wanted to beg off drawing, because she doesn't like drawing what she's told to draw. She just wants to draw what she decides.  I had her try it any way. I think she did a great job with the symmetry, and she didn't need any help with it at all.

Maria's vase/face. She had a hard time with the profile itself. Once I helped her through the first profile, she was able to add the other side relatively easily.

Now mine. 
I had trouble with the second profile, right when I hit the forehead to nose transition. I started to parallel the left side, inside of doing a mirror image. I had to stop, erase and then think "vase" in order to get going again.

The upside down drawings were fun. Unfortunately the girls didn't try them yet. Hoping they'll catch up. I may find a simplier drawing for them to try first, since they were both intimidated by the Picasso.

First, upside down. The right side up. This was an interesting exercise. I was mostly able to just draw, without thinking about what part I was drawing. Hands and face were tough to do this with, I knew I was drawing the hands. For some things I thought it helped me to remember what they were like the button holes. It also helped to look at adjacent lines to figure out how long or short another line was, to help keep the proportions right.

Now spiderman, just for extra practice. I didn't take as much time with this drawing and it shows, especially in the legs and feet.
