Welcome to a new feature to the blog; the Sketchbook!
This new feature will be my means of documenting my experiments, sketches and studies and posting them on the blog every week or two. There will be a variety of themes for this undertaking and some weeks may contain a vast amount of sketches whilst others may only contain one or two more detailed works.
This will also work hand in hand with my two new goals for this year; to use my sketchbook a lot more and sketch at every possible moment; also, to blog a lot more and get the momentum back with it.
Over the past few months my posting has been a rarity due to work commitments and a general lack of time to complete my larger projects and get them posted; therefore the Sketchbook will give me more opportunities to get things finished and to get blog posts up as they are a lot less time consuming than oil paintings and large drawings.
Without further ado, the theme for this week is Vikings and it will be a recurring one as I am studying Norse life for a future project!
These first two pieces I actually experimented with timelapse videos for for the first time as well; they can be found on my Instagram, the link for that will be at the bottom of this post.
This sketch was an experiment in challenging myself; I have become very comfortable depicting single figure compositions and I wanted to try a group of figures; a quick rough sketch but one that bore fruit nonetheless and taught me a lot.
That’s all for this post but I hope you have enjoyed this new feature and I will soon be posting more so don’t forget to follow/subscribe to the blog to stay updated; the subscription box can be found further down the page.
Also, to see my works in progress and behind the scenes style pics as well as other stuff exclusive to that platform; follow me on Instagram @JGloverArt
Until next time, farewell!
