EDM in EDiM 29-31 Rushing the last three!

Life is getting a bit out of hand so I took the opportunity of a quiet Saturday afternoon to finish the challenges off - I know it is not quite in the spirit to rush the end...but I didn't want to miss out on the last one and it might not get done if I leave it to next week.
Thanks to everyone that has joined in the fun this month - it has been unbelievably inspiring and a total buzz!!!
100529 EDm in EDiM 31 My Collection of Sketchbooks
So here is EDM 31- Something I collect... filled sketchbooks. Funny that I was obsessed with the uniform row of watercolour moleskines when I started but once I broke the mould I like the randomness of my shelves. Covering the current books that I use is a great way of remembering what is in each (I had to cover them as the are not robust enough to survive my usage of them)
100529 EDm in EDiM 30 A (T2) chair
EDM 30- A chair - tragically the Teahouse was full when I arrived so I had no choice of my seat let alone a good view of one of the fancy chairs. This view is not quite right as I was poking my head out to look around the corner at it. Of course I drew my tea cup as well!
100529 EDm in EDiM 29 Something Architectural
EDM 29 - now this was hard deciding and I then pushed myself to work as fast as I could. Pity I didn't think about my use of colour first (if I could I would redo the colour!!!!) Vivaldi's first movement of Winter was my theme piece of music when I was in Venice at Xmas time a few years ago - hence background music - certainly affected the speed at which my hand moved!!!

100528 ASQ Concert

I might go out sketching on my own - or travel solo but going out to a concert on my own is not something I have done before. But I was given a free ticket for a concert last night.(Thanks Jenny- I REALLY enjoyed it!!!)
100528 ASQ Concert 1

To make the evening more interesting I parked my car at Milsons Point on the northside of the harbour and walked across the harbour bridge to get to Angel Place and then back again- did it all exactly within my 4 hour parking restriction and walked approx 6km. Lovely mild evening and the ever changing lights on the Opera House (part of a special Light festival) made the walk even more interesting. REALLY quick sketch on the bridge on my way over.
100528 ASQ Concert 2
I got to the Recital Hall early to do a careful sketch of the interior - but the seat next to me was occupied by an artist - and a watercolour portrait artist (even better!) - so I chatted instead...which is really far better. Dee's work is great and can be seen here
100528 ASQ Concert 3
100528 ASQ Concert 4

I am so out of practice of drawing people but at the same time was more interested in trying to capture the movement of the bow and string instruments in making the music - so here are all my loose sketches - I sketched nearly all the time.

100528 ASQ Concert 5
100528 ASQ Concert 6
100528 ASQ Concert 7
100528 ASQ Concert 8

I really should do this more often!!! Running out of pages in my book and also I freeze up a bit when I do these type of sketches in my book - so did a lot on loose paper and a few in the back page. I then had some collage to do when I got home!

What would I do without my kettle????

From my Dad's Portfolio

From Dad's Portfolio 03
From Dad's Portfolio 02
From Dad's Portfolio 01
Since so many of you enjoying seeing my dad’s shed... We thought you might be interested in some of the artwork he did before he left home at the age of 15. “So it is no wonder that you are sketching, Liz, it is in your blood” he just said to me.

100527 EDm in EDiM A Gene Stratton Porter Book

100527 EDm in EDiM A Gene Stratton Porter Book
A simple quick sketch...but I have been through so much heartache to get to the point of sketching this... as I could only find the first page and the last six.... but finally tonight after two nights of searching I have been able to reunite all the pages- the cover has long gone!
The book is a 1924 edition of Gene Stratton Porter’s Her Fathers Daughter owned by my Great Great Aunt Lena.

Gene Stratton Porter is practically unknown in Australia in my generation but mum had these old books(all the popular GSP books) that she gave to my sister and me to read when we had read every LM Montgomery book in existence (by the way The Blue Castle is the BEST!!!!!) I much prefer GSP to LMM as a rule.

This book has a MAJOR problem in that it is extremely racist (unbelievably anti-Japanese which might be kinda historically interesting but rather distressing to read in a girls novel) but despite that strand of the plot, I LOVE the rest of the book and it is my favourite GSP book (when I re-read I skip those racist bits) The heroine Linda is plucky (love that word) and goes on adventures in the canyons collecting desert vegetables and fruit for interesting recipes and sketches and the hero Peter is building a dream home and is so nice. One architect is the villian and the other architect is a female and incredibly talented. Does this sound like a book I would find some interest in? (by the Linda doesn’t drink tea!..well I don’t think so... Maybe I need to re-read it again)

Anyway... This book is precious because I never expected that any one would re-publish it... About 10 years ago, thanks to Amazon, I got copies of all the other GSP books so I could start sharing them with my friends...alas no reprint of this book. Today, I discovered that someone has republished it so guess what has ended up in my cart!
Another WONDERFUL book of Aunty Lena is “Paddy-the –next-best-thing” by Gertrude Page – talk about obscure...but it is great. As I re-read it a lot it is falling to pieces too- so sad!!!

100526 EDM in EDiM 26 Draw a vegetable

100526 EDM in EDiM 26 Draw a vegetable
Well, I had a delightful time doing this.
I LOVE drawing food of all kind and plain veggies are just as good as fruit in my opinion – both to draw and to eat (which I do all the time – except for tonight for some funny reason). I sketched while listening to a beautiful piece of music Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings (I am going to a concert on Friday night and trying to get to know the pieces beforehand). Somehow the combination of the exquisite background music and the fact that I have drawn my veggies on a pretty plate (actually looks prettier in my sketch than real life) has made me think I am drawing a ‘pretty’ object- but it is just some plain veggies. I am probably not making any sense!?! But what is new?
BTW, that is indeed a stalk of a broccoli bunch – no wastage in my house!

100525 EDM in EDiM 25 Draw a Glass

100525 EDM in EDiM 25 Draw a Glass
Not that interested in this one... now if I had a glass teapot I would have had fun...so thinking of not bothering tonight and then I saw a glass that would only take me 5 minutes to draw- after all I can't continue drawing when the sands ran out could it. And it is tea related – a specific timer for the perfect cup of tea.
In fact I painted this as well within the 5 minutes. Of course it took me long to do the writing and post it...

100524 EDM in EDiM 24 A piece of fruit
Just a quick simple one for today! Now that I have taken the pressure off am just enjoying the daily challenges so much.

And BTW, I did eat the front pair while scanning and posting. See you all tomorrow!!!!

EDM in EDiM 20 and 23- Something Dad

100522 EDM in EDiM 20 Draw something DAD
It is totally appropriate for me to visit my dad's shed on a Saturday afternoon - since hanging out here is one of the lovely memories I have from childhood. Quite a few changes as the shed has been upgraded since my dads retirement.. but some things are the same.
BTW the models that I made as an architecture student and tried to throw out are all decaying gracefully(???) in the top of the shed- I have faintly indicated 3 of them in this sketch.

Last nights offering...
100521 EDM in EDiM 23 Draw your foot

I am going to be offline for a few days – so here is ‘Sunday’s’ challenge.
Way too tired to do this ... I am obviously reacting against all those simple object pages and going for intense, busy, chocka block spreads at the moment.(symbolic of my mental state perhaps!?!)
On the right is a sketch from one of my more interesting books (probably in my top 10 interesting)

100519 EDM in EDiM 19,20,22 Collection

An unexpected crazy deadline at work means that I will be out of action for a few days...so trying to get ahead tonight. Had intended to do EDM 20 Something Dad on the weekend anyway... So here is 19, 21, 22.

100519 EDM in EDiM 19,20,22 Collection


I ended up doing 19 x 4 and 22 x 3 – how is that for KEEN?! Plus I couldn’t resist doing my special cup! C’mon it is not a proper monthly challenge for me unless I manage to sneak in at least 10 cup sketches in the month somehow, is it?

A very busy page but I enjoyed it! - can you tell?

BTW1 more about the cup and the VERY special great aunt(I think I have some of her creative genes) that gave it to me is
Here and here
BTW2 my dress fabrics don’t look at all these sketches... So I tried drawing the patterns to the background...but a bit too loose tonight. One of the fabrics is seen here
BTW3 are you interested in all my ramblings (a sign that I am too tired...)
BTW4 I am still to do a good sketch of my tea cosy which I adore but is decidedly quirky and turned out quite different from what I planned
BTW5 Yes, the cosy is a bit short
BTW6 I made an error- the cup is only 130 years old
BTW7 Ok... I am finishing now!!!!!

100518 EDM in EDiM 18 View out of a window
not quite what I expected to see... but you cant help the weather. A very rare rainy day in Sydney. It was SO dark when I started sketching this this morning - but I couldn't be late for work due to a sketch could I?

100517 EDM 15-17

I have been having a bit of a mid-month crisis - a bit dissatisfied with myself on the days that I rushed the challenge to get out of the way (both the resultant sketch and the lack of enjoyment I felt in this approach) and wondering what my big goal for the month really is... I don't have time tonight to expand...

So I decided to take the pressure on myself off... make sure that I want to draw the object and to not worry if I miss a day- either posting or sketching.
Needless to say, when I take the pressure off, I often keep performing... so tonight somehow I am now up to date
100515 EDM in EDiM 15 A tree
In case you missed it- here is my tree from Saturday... done very quickly (what a surprise!) at the end of a long sketching day!
100517 EDM in EDiM 16 A tool(not favourite)
Of course my favourite tool is my lamy joy pen with a gold EF nib... but that would have been predictable and a bit dull to draw.
100517 EDM in EDiM 17 A musical Instrument
The only musical instrument I own. This is probably all a little to difficult to explain... but it has a LOT of meaning for me and reminds me of the struggles of the early teenage years.
The book is my Scottish Psalmody- which contains the Scottish Metrical Psalms and the tunes written in tonic solfa - this is how we sing at church in 4 part harmony. If the metre is the same you can choose any tune to sing - hence the split pages. So Sound of Music does have a practical use - it is the only way that people can understand it! But Maria doesn't explain the way it is written and the meaning of all the dots and dashes. A very clever system for the unmusical.

Borromini has a girlfriend

100515 Borromini has a girlfriend!

This is Annie's little bear who travels with her - doesn't get outside as much as Borromini. They became friends instantly

100515 Sketchcrawl 27

warning - long post today!!!!
Here are my sketches from the sketchcrawl today... I LOVE sketching...but all this scanning is a bit of a chore!
Needless to say it was a wonderful day!!!
And it also made me aware yet again how much I love my hometown and our stunning harbour. It was a big day for Sydeny - the harbour and the Opera House was the stage for the homecoming of Jessica Watson - 16yr old girl who has sailed around the world. We missed out on all the action - but there is no avoiding it on the TV!

EDM272 A Line from your favourite (Scottish) song

Ok - time to do the latest EDM challenge...
EDM272 A Line from your favourite (Scottish) song


These lyrics are hard to beat - if you can understand them. I decided that I just HAD to write them out (a good way to brush up on the few lines that I am rusty with) Quick sketch during the second half of my lunchbreak today! (hope there wasn't something else I was supposed to do?) Was good to do a landscape for a change - need to get practising my Scottish landscapes.

The song is The Road To The Isles
and should be sung with a thick Scottish accent if possible.

A far croonin' is pullin' me away
As take I wi' my cromack to the road.
The far Coolins are puttin' love on me
As step I wi' the sunlight for my load.

Chorus
Sure by Tummel and Loch Rannoch and Lochaber I will go
By heather tracks wi' heaven in their wiles.
If it's thinkin' in your inner heart the braggart's in my step
You've never smelled the tangle o' the Isles.
Oh the far Coolins are puttin' love on me
As step I wi' my cromack to the Isles.

It's by Shiel water the track is to the west
By Aillort* and by Morar to the sea
The cool cresses I am thinkin' of for pluck
And bracken for a wink on Mother knee.

The blue islands are pullin' me away
Their laughter puts the leap upon the lame
The blue islands from the Skerries to the Lewis
Wi' heather honey taste upon each name.

BTW - don't worry if you can't understand the words - I had to ask some advice myself for a translation!!!!!

100513 EDM in EDiM 13 Draw A Phone

For some reason I have a switch phone on my desk (smallish architectural office with no secretary) - drawing it made me realise some quirks.

100513 EDM in EDiM 13 Draw A Phone
Feel back in the grove in the last two days.... subject matter does make a difference although I am getting a bit bored of drawing objects so felt like some collage (did this last Thursday too!) I have my collection of patterns (from CDs that come with a few books I have) randomly changing as my desktop background. The black one with the drops was on display when I started the phone sketch - drew it progressively during the morning (during printing, saving, opening file time)

100512 EDM in EDiM 12 Draw your dinner

Well- this one was hardly a challenge for me... I am in my element... love drawing my food so much that I did my lunch as well as my dinner- or is that my dinner as well as my tea? You choose. Anyway - I had fun doing my usual food scribbles while still eating my food hot.
100512 EDM in EDiM 12 Draw your dinner
BTW something I wrote a while ago...
My trick to sketching my food and eating it hot!
I have the advantage of being left handed with a brush and pen but use my fork in the right hand. So....I normally draw quick outline, and then if I need to cut my food up I do this next (I eat a lot of stir fries with bite size food so this helps), then I start to eat from the back side of the plate so I can finish the outlines. Then, if there is no need for me to leading the conversation during the meal, I often start painting while I am still eating (using a waterbrush) - otherwise I do the colour from memory when I am finished my meal (but still sitting at the table)
I am developing my technique all the time.

From Saturday night

100511 Cup Cakes On Pitt
Today's EDM drawing was so boring that I need something a bit brighter.

Drawn extremely quickly just before we ate them on Saturday night. These cakes are apparently a bit of an institution/tourist attraction. Saturday night was the first time I had ever had them. Decidedly great objects to draw. Will have to get some more and sketch from a better angle.

EDM 09-11 Catch up

Ok... Been a little slack lately.
Yesterday:
Here are Two extremely rushed pages that I did yesterday to to catch up - I managed to get both done in 30 minutes during my lunchbreak but then add a bit more colour when I got home.
EDM in EDiM09 Organised Chaos
EDM in EDiM10 Hand or Hands
Today:
100511 EDM in EDiM 11 Glasses
After yesterday's pathetic effort I thought I would TRY to be a little more careful - but once again a bit too tired to do it justice. But.... tomorrow I will be in my element- draw your dinner!
