Sketch, distorted shapes and angles
I took this photo just a few minutes ago so one can see the difference when the drawing is viewed from a different perspective. Interesting isn't it.
I used Photoshop to lighten the paper but what I wanted to focus on this post is the distortion caused by the way I had the drawing board. I haven't learned yet to compensate the angles when I have the drawing board laying on my lap instead of upright. When I look at the drawing as it is laying flat on the desk and I am sitting back in my chair, the angles look correct. When I raised the drawing to a vertical position, I can see how incorrect everything is. At least that is what I think happened. So I will sketch this little girl again to get the angles and shapes more accurate.
