Line Study

The generous and talented guys from  Speed Drawing Group (link here, in Russian,) regularly publish there workshops to Youtube. And suddenly I am stiсked to these lessons, learning a lot, practicing line drawing, collage and composition as the video lesson goes on.
Today I publish line work I copied from masters (in brown ink) and did from imagination (in pencil, black ink with brush, brushpen or bamboo stick
Dmitry Gorelishev, the head of the group, shows his collages (link here). I saved some for further reference and ideas and want to share his collages here with you.
Now I am going to try this technique by myself.

Left and Right

30 x 40cm, Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper

The idea to draw the lines of the hand turned into this fantasy portrait of my left and right hands.

And I thought: How often new person in your life looks normal or even boring from the outside and turns into colorful and unpredictable personality when you look closer.

Inside the Backpack

"Draw what is in your bag" is one from "Every Day Matters" drawing ideas list.
The content of my backpack is rather ordinary: glasses, wallet, keys, small bag with necessities (which content deserves a separate post), camera, drawing kit, paper tissues.
No, sneaker is not included in the backpack, it is added due to the artist's (mine) vision of the composition.

Midtones are difficult for me, this study was difficult too.
