The next few posts are going to showcase my responses to prompts found in the book, One Drawing a Day by Veronica Lawlor. I hope you enjoy these brief posts while I’m out on a mini adventure and have minimal access to the internet 🙂
set up a still life and using a pen, draw continuously, only lifting the pen when absolutely necessary!
Here is my first efforts at this:
This was more tricky than it probably looks as there is the temptation to keep taking the pen off the paper. I resisted as much as possible, but I quite like the wonky look of the sunglasses and distorted fan in the wine glass 🙂
task two: now use the same technique and draw someone
I enjoyed this challenge, with my daughter as model. I only took the pen off the paper twice – once because my bracelet got caught on the corner of my sketchbook and the second time to complete the left eye. It was liberating to draw this way as there are elements you have to miss out. She propped open a book on my foot and because of the task suggesting a continuous drawing and my daughter not wanting to sit still for very long, the open book is only half drawn!
