I’m continuing to work on my little series of “love” drawings based on old photos.  It’s tricky working from photos, because I have a tendency to try too hard to make it look just like the photo. As I saw how dingy and overly careful the drawings were appearing, I vowed to try to force myself to loosen up a little.

I may end up starting over on some of these subjects to see if I get better results once I get in the groove. If I had to say something nice about the drawings in this post, I’d say I’m pretty happy with the legs and feet of the lady with the apron. Otherwise, they kind of look like the sort of drawings that happen on the way to drawings that I like. On the other hand, the underpainting on the windmill one looks promising. We’ll see what happens…
