One of the very first subjects I tried drawing was a pixie-like alien for a children’s story I was writing. This one is a lot better than that rather embarrassing first try, but it is still one of my earliest attempts. Unfortunately for me, this challenge fell at a very inopportune time. My time and my mind have been thoroughly occupied with the stress of the international move. So I am sharing this older drawing instead of something new. Hopefully things will have settled down in time for the next challenge!
A biweekly challenge for a total of 26 drawings this year.
With drawing number 13, we reach the halfway point of the year. Can you believe it? The summer solstice, the longest day, warm weather and hopefully lots of sunshine lifts the spirits and reenergizes the mind and body. So for this biweekly challenge, the theme reflects the whimsical feeling of summer. Let’s draw:
Fairies or pixies
This time the theme was fruits and vegetables. Once again, I went digital for this challenge. However, though I’m using a modern technique, I chose a timeless classic for my still life subject: A bowl of fruit.
