28 Drawings Later: Day Ten

Not a drawing challenge without the good old ‘one a day’ still life. 25 minutes pastel done at kitchen table with 6 year old daughter copying along. Pastels on paper.

28 Drawings Later: Day Seven

I cracked open the lovely set of rembrandt pastels my hubby brought me for my birthday 200 million years ago. It took an hour to do this study, because bed was calling me. Based on a painting I saw years ago, a titan haired woodland fairy angel.

28 Drawings Later: Day Two

Pencil on paper (posh photocopy paper no less) – A.P. Monster. 30 minutes with small child trying to putty erase what I am doing. Have not sketched with pencil for many years – a real challenge! Please be kind.

28 Drawings Later: Day One

I came across this challenge last month. The premise is simple. During February, draw, design, sketch, paint and create 28 pieces of artwork, a piece a day. I fell in love with the idea and the old fine art student in me is bursting to be unleashed.

I decided my first piece was going to be a typographic based artwork (possibily to go into the newly painted bathroom), I was going to do it digitally and then thought that it would look great as an acrylic piece.

Rather pleased with the result, the colours are lovely and vibrant and It only took me a couple of hours to do, in between everything else that needs doing. Maybe tomorrow I will attempt an old sckool pencil still life? Eek!
