“To study is to learn – watching a 5 minute youtube video can sometimes be free education, the one I found was priceless.” by Mary
A Study – based on a youtube drawing demonstration by Sergey Lebedev, a graphite drawing (8×10) on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. Graphite was my choice of medium for this scene. Mr. Lebedev is an accomplished artist I found on the internet; he has produced several youtube video’s demonstrating his techniques for drawing landscapes. This guy is very good – the final drawings shown in his 5 minute video’s are excellent.
I learned a lot by watching the few he produced and decided to do a study based on one of his drawings. Even though I titled the piece “A Study,” as I reached the halfway point in working on this drawing my own artistic instinct for how the scene should develop took over. While the foundation of his landscape is present, my final drawing reflects more of the vision I had for this country scene. It was a great learning opportunity.
