Swift strokes

Lately I have been trying my hand at some linework and quick shading in black-and-white. It has been an encouraging phase for me, for as some of you will know, completing time-intensive artworks can become trying, especially when the results are disappointing!

Doing a few minute-long pieces has been quite fun therefore, simply copying any photo I fancy, without bothering about too much finesse. 

Some actors from Tree of Life, graphite stick

My husband's legs! Charcoal

Copies of random photos in graphite

Copy of the photo below, three delightfully beautiful young ladies who happen to be my friends too!

You can see why I was inspired to draw them!! Such beauties!

So, I believe this is improving my hand at mastering strokes with ease and drawing what I see more accurately...
