Nina Johansson decided to fill a two page spread of her journal with drawings she does daily for each week. She asked if anyone wanted to join her in doing this. I thought it might be a good way to get myself to do a bit more drawing. As you can see I did a "bit" more but didn't quite get an object drawn each day. Still, I did better than I have been doing.
The word "pear" and the flowers were done in ink and watercolor pencils while the other pictures were drawn in pencil and then colored in with Prismacolor pencils. I used fluorescent colors for my canary as he really is that color but the colors didn't come out at all with a scan and even with this photo look washed out.
These are probably the most realistic drawings I have ever done. It was challenging to say the least and I am not sure I will do the same kind of colorwork every week but we'll see how it all goes. Maybe I'll even learn to do better on my layout so my kitty won't get speared through her head with a branch again!!
Thank you Nina for a great idea.
