Art Not-Quite-Every Day Month & Drawing Lab Challenge results – catch up week
Okay, I blew it today. Busy all day, visitors, a trip to the doc’s for Izzy (she’s fine), and I traded my last little bit of doodle time for a shower. I did start a doodle, but barely had time to do anything and I’m exhausted. So no art today 🙁
So, why am I posting? Cos I wanna ::grin:: So here is a piece I prepared earlier…about five years earlier.
|Blue Grass Lily, soft pastel on black pastel paper.|
Those of you who have been following me since the Creative Colour Challenge might know that I’m a recent learner of the soft pastel medium. Well, here is my first ever pastel drawing (and first time drawing on a black background, too). According to my journal of the time, it took me an hour and a half back in 2005. Five years ago? I thought I said I was new? I am (though not at talking to myself :D). I did a small amount of experimenting back then, a handful of half finished drawings. Then I got pregnant in 2007 and didn’t touch the things again until June this year.
And I kinda like this little sketch. Just thinking now what I could do with the same subject with all my recent experience….hmmm, might be worth playing with.
Drawing Lab Challenge – how did you all do? Did you manage to catch up or expand on a previous Lab experiment? I did some doodling with lots and lots of swirls which caught me up on Challenge #4, but I haven’t revisited anything.
Tomorrow a new Lab Challenge. I hope those of you doing Art Every Day Month can weave it into your schedules.
