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! πŸ˜€



About whitefeatherfloating

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 and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)
