Street Ball

The model yesterday at the figure drawing class conveyed fitness. She was strong, limber and full of energy and I caught some of her athleticism in the brush drawing of her above.

One of my goals for this blog is to tell a story through image and today I developed the sketch further with this end in mind. The model’s fitness reminded me of my neighbors and the street ball they play in front of our house. I went out and sketched the basketball hoop and ball using Procreate on my iPad, thinking the detail would strengthen the message. I thought about adding shoes but the shoes never looked quite right so I left the woman with bare feet.

This is a brush drawing on multimedia paper with a background layer using Procreate.
