Oops .. I have neglected my blog for a few days…so to catch up (from today backwards)

EdiM21
Sorry – another paint theme EDiM. The last thing I bought was food but it is all eaten… so I had to go back to Friday’s visit to the Artscene!

This sketch started out as a controlled ink and pitt pen grey tonal study of my empty pans… (yes my current paint tin has a combination of half and full pans) but then I just realised that I haven’t scraped or splashed for a while… and I sure was in the mood for it! SO MUCH FUN! Particularly the scraping part…

I think I need to make sure that I remember to scrape more regularly!

some random notes (thanks to Jenn for the new ‘credit card’ – this was its first use!) and I also had a wonderful few hours with Helen from Melbourne and some really special botanical artists. Was talking to Beth about making sure that their was joy in her work- look at this piece of hers http://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/image/0008/127268/McAnoy_Hydrangea_macrophylla.jpg
stunning!
 

EDiM 20 Your favourite Drink
Groan…another tea cup… but what I am supposed to do when the challenge for today is draw your favourite drink… I couldn’t possibly draw anything else could i? So added some silly notes about what I was thinking about while I was drawing it. Actually this is quite a bit larger than my normal size in this sketchbook… every cuppa sketch is different!

 

 
EDiM 18 Palm of my right hand
EDiM 19 Something belonging to someone else
 Such a different thing to be doing commission work for others rather than such playing in my sketchbook… got to get in the mood and then START!
So just to warm up I quickly did today and tomorrows EDiM (I don’t sketch on Sunday so need to get ahead) The blue fireplace detail in the background is part of what I am about to paint… ok here goes… sigh, deep breath, I can do it!
 
 
EdiM 17
my goal for the EDiM challenges this year is to try to make my subjects as relevant to my life at the moment as I can… ie. not draw random objects. So today’s item form a first aid kit is some sport tape that is very much part of my life at the moment. It helps a lot! I get bored with drawing single objects (well unless it is a tea cup!) some a little bit of collage today as well!
