Week 17

MilkweedWhat a sense of accomplishment this drawing gave me today.  I still used every type of pencil I own, my new colored Pigma pens and even the Caran d’Ache Neo Color II crayons.  I scribbled those crayons heavily into a small place on a paper plate, then used a wet paintbrush to dissolve them so I could apply them to the drawing.   I actually could see that I had made progress in dealing with these different mediums.  It wasn’t until after I’d finished that I realized this was actually a “roots” drawing.  Beginnings

The India ink drawing at the left is one of the very first things I ever purposefully did as an artist way back in the 1980s.  Eventually I began to add loose watercolor washes over the drawing.  It was that simple beginning that makes this multi-medium process and progress so exciting to me today.

Week 13 Drawing

This was fun for m13 Drawe to do.  I don’t  like that overall circle shape but that’s a lesson to be learned.   It’s not a master work but there are things I really like about the looseness of the geranium in particular.  I got out every kind of pencil and pen I own and began washing over areas with a dampened brush then went in right on the damp paper and more pencils, a regular gel ballpoint pen and Pigma pens.
