Degas Practice in Charcoal


Hello Friends!

Yesterday I decided to get back into practicing drawing copies of Degas’s ballerinas without tracing them. I did this one by just eyeballing it, but I am going to try it again using a different method to get the proportions more accurate, also without tracing.

I worked on gesture sketches of ballerinas in different poses in charcoal yesterday, too. I will share those tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)
