My glasses

I can see just fine without my glasses. I just have a little astigmatism. But I need them to watch TV, work on the computer or drive. I never draw without them either, but I tried that today, since I wanted to draw them for EDM #11. (F, HB and B pencils on Strathmore drawing paper medium, 8"x10".)

Puedo ver sin problemas sin mis gafas. Sólo tengo un poco de astigmatismo. Pero las necesito para ver la TV, trabajar en el ordenador o conducir. Tampoco dibujo nunca sin gafas, pero hoy lo probé, ya que quería dibujarlas para el ejercicio número 11 de EDM. (Lápices F, HB y B en papel medio Strathmore, 20.3 cm x 25.4 cm.)

    Recuerdo un viejo consejo que procuro seguir: para dibujar del natural, quítate las gafas.

  7. I am always fascinated by drawings that look one way in a blog presentation...and a totally different way close-up.
    The subtlety of detailing that adds up to a near flawless, yet expressionistic rendering is most prevalent in this 'simple' sketch.

  12. I think that if someone don't see fine is better never take it off because it could bring hard consequences, what people should do is visiting an specialist.m10m
