The theme is “Spring” which to me conjures flowers and blooms. I’m not great with charcoal so I decided to practice this week. Filling in the background resulted in unintentionally creating a ‘negative’ image. With all my many attempts in charcoal, this was the best of the lot. As you can see, I need to practice a lot more! Nevertheless, here is my spring lily in Charcoal
A biweekly challenge for a total of 26 drawings this year.
Since the vernal equinox will be upon us this next week, the challenge for this two week challenge is:
Have fun with this wide open challenge!
This week’s theme, dedicated to the start of March is “in like a lion.” I had every intention of trying to draw a lion, but life intrudes. My home has just gone up for sale and with a flurry of showings, I’ve had to leave the house and my art supplies behind. I am not one to take a sketch pad and draw in the car! Anyway, the lion drawing would be complex and time consuming no matter where I set up to draw. Instead I offer a glimpse of the lion-like weather we’ve been having this past week. March really did come in like a lion, with cold, snow and lots of wind! A quick sketch done with just one pencil in my small sketch pad.
