Baboon drawing

hannah_lewis_baboon

Along with the lion drawing, I’m drawing an african baboon. So far everything going well, but the detail of the hair is going to take me a long time to do.

I would love it if you would leave a comment and let me know what you think about this drawing, and if you have any tips that you can give me.

The 2013 Sony World Photography Exhibition

Last week visited the Sony World photography Exhibition at Somerset House and just like last year, I found the exhibition to be just as good. In the exhibition, each room covers a different category for example, people, Nature & Wildlife  and Landscape, so there are a variety of topics for people to enjoy.

There were lots of photographs this year that caught my attention, to the stories behind them and the power and beauty of the image. So I think that I might blog each artists name along with their work in another blog post.

Below are some photographs of the day.

“One Day in History” by Andrea Gjestvang was my favourite out of the whole exhibition. The images were very powerful as it portrayed the after effects of surviving the  2011 massacre on the Norwegian island of Ultøya.

Another photograph that I loved was Nenad Saljic’s “A Portrait of the Matterhorn”.

Stage 3 drawing the lion’s fur

I’m now at the stage where I am drawing the lion’s fur. I’m taking my time and trying not to rush it because I want it to turn out really good. After that all I need to do is the eyes and the snout. Again I would love to have feedback (positive or negative) so I know what you think.

Stage 2 of Lion drawing

The next stage to my lion drawing. So far this photograph has taken me much longer than I expected, but it’s my first animal drawing, so I want to do it properly.

Feel free to comment on this drawing, as I would love to know what you think. 😀

Don’t Talk to Strange Men (1962)

“Don’t Talk to Strange Men” about a girl (Christina Gregg) who falls for a man she’s never met over the telephone. She is groomed by him and becomes captured and intrigued by him, eventually agreeing to meet him.

I love everything about this film from the acting to the story line. I feel that this underrated film was made before its time as it mirrors exactly what is happening in todays society on such things as Facebook and chat room. If you ever see this film showing, I would recommend you watch it, you won’t regret it.

Derwent Pencil Wrap

Since I’ve began drawing, I’ve grown a bit tired of carrying around tins of pencils whenever I draw outside of my home. I thought about getting a pencil case, but if I’m out and about I wanted something that would give me easy access to the pencils instead of me continuously digging to find the right pencil.

I found this pencil wrap online when I was searching for charcoal pencils and at £4.99 I thought that I could give it a go. It arrived today and in great time too because I’m going on a long train ride, so I can spend most of my time drawing.

Low light photography

At this present moment I’m researching low lighting, so I thought that I would post a bunch of photographs that I found interesting.

Beginning of my lion drawing

hannah_lewis_lion_drawing

The beginning of my pencil drawing of a lion. This will be my second colouring pencil drawing that I have ever spent time doing. I’m not sure what to think about it so far because it looks like a dog to me, but it’s early stages.

Although I mainly specialise in photography I wanted to try and regain my skills in drawing and painting, so from now on I will be blogging about all different  art work that I produce.

Text for my Photograph

Last minute details for my exhibition, but I’m in two minds if I should include the text. I’ll decide when I hang up the photograph.
