Voyeurism, or not looking.

  Generally speaking I have not been tempted to sit and spy upon people from my vantage point on the rock: there are, quite frankly, more interesting things to look at.  (I make an exception for the men spraying marks […]

Study 2

This is another study of an eye focusing more on expression and detail compared to my other one. In total this took me 4 hours to draw and I’m pleased with the outcome of it. I did copy the image […]

Study 1

This was one of the first eye sketch studies I did using pencil into sketchbook. I got the idea and copied the idea from the internet because I felt the internet was convenient at the time. I am rather pleased […]

Wimping out.

Today is only the second time I have given up on a walk (if you don’t count the decision not to go to the end of the Ness of Burgi).  There have been several days when I have decided to […]
