The Pen is Mightier than the Pencil
My class in composition ended last week and we were all challenged to a 30 day challenge committing ourselves to a certain number of drawings per week.
I don’t like to be so public about this kind of thing. But so far I’ve done a drawing a day.
Some are from some of my thousands of photographs, some are from real life.
I find going back to the pen much easier; landscapes tend to lend themselves to value studies much more easily than what are ‘portraits’ although the one I did today was a sunflower; and the one several days ago a spoonbill.
Still it has been a fun project–if nothing more exciting than looking through my photos, pruning them—why four photos of sunflowers at just a slightly different angle?
color in this drawing would have aided the definition of the bird; it is a light pink; and the water was an increible blue.
an again, an incredible blue sky, bright yellow petals and medium to dark green leaves.
What shall I draw tomorrow?
I’ve got lots of photos to peruse.
