I’m looking to improve my observational drawing skills. Sometimes, that gets tiring. To give my brain a break, I’ve been painting some of my friends photographs. Drawing from photographs is exponentially easier than drawing from life. ConvertingĀ 3D to 2D in your mind, while keeping any sort of perspective, is arduous. Photographs do all this conversion work for you, so I can keep drawing without tempting to give up on making drawing a habit.

Here’s one of the recent sketches from my past few days of drawing. Thanks to Tom for the image, check out his blog about his travels!
