30 Day Foot Study
#1,2 & 3 - Water soluble lead & watercolour wash - 20 mins
Another body part has been selected for the Wet Canvas 30 day challenge and this time Jeanne Grant chose the foot.
Feet are one of those subjects I struggled with when I attempted them at high school, along with animals, portraits & figures. Needless to say I tried them once failed miserably and never tried again! Four years ago when I returned to art, I decided to conquer all my fears and look failure straight between the eyes with a brave 'Rocky' attitude. I now try to see items as subjects rather than specific items, looking at form, values and structure, hoping to draw what I see not what I think I see. This has worked and I no longer use the phrase 'I can't draw that'.
Feet are one of those fears I haven't had much need to practice in those four years so this challenge is most welcome. I have my hoodie and boxing gloves on ready, please excuse me if I start to shout 'Adrian' in a slurred tone.
