Rainy Days and Mondays - one liner

Rainy Days and Mondays - one liner

I think this method gives us all a great deal of confidence, I know it's helped me with issues I've had in the past [ faffing to name but one!] I love the red umbrella and the child in the yellow wellies!

nice one Christine I just did one similar I never saw yours till I put mine on . mines a none liner .I don't bother with lines much .lol

What great movement in all the people in this scene - the leg positions are spot on! Lovely colourful sketch and it has all the vibrancy that we are now coming to realise that these lively one-liners display. A great subject and a great result!

Thank you Debs, Dennis and Thea, It's been very wet and dreary here all day today so I had to add a bit of colour! I know what you mean about faffing Debs and it certainly stops that, you can't erase a pen line! I think, when Thea first started this with the 'selfies' we were all a bit apprehensive about posting our dodgy looking efforts but they have evolved so much and we are all going from strength to strength.

It has worked well for you too Christine!

It's all about confidence with the pen Christine. Before the one line/no looking/upside down/whatever method, we might have said that there were certain things that we couldn't or found difficult to draw and never attempted them. Increased confidence and a what does it matter if our pen lines are wobbly attitude have resulted in lots of super, spontaneous drawings, one of which is just above. The leaning man on the left is wonderful!

Movement, colour, composition - it's got them all !!

I think it must be the continuous line which is connecting the group of people together and somehow makes the task easier to master. I only realised it two minutes ago while observing your painting here. The line from the sleeve to the umbrella did the click!! Great painting Christine!

It's been said, Christine, my being late to the party again.

This is super, Christine! Love the colorful scene and the minimal lines which, nevertheless, convey the essence of movement and posture.

Hang on Studio Wall

This was drawn the right way up in one continuous line with a few glances down as I moved from one figure to another. I would never usually tackle a group of figures, Louise is the expert on this one, but this method gave me the confidence to give it a go.
