Our drawing class has met three times already. I thought I would share some of the art I have generated in these past three weeks. I hope you enjoy them. I know I enjoyed creating them.
Our first assignment was to create a self portrait still life using our choice of three objects that represent ourselves. I chose my prayer book which represents God as the central part of my life, the crochet hook resting on top of the book represents my joy in doing crafts and needlework and my hope to use my needlework for the Church, and the yellow sunflower represents my marriage to the hubster. The reason the flower is the only color in the picture is to express the joy and love and ‘brightness’ that the hubster is in my life.
This landscape was last nights work done in about 60 to 75 minutes. I really like the way it came out, particularly the tree trunks.
These pictures are from my sketchbook. We are to draw 15 minutes every day. From left to right: bananas (pastels), scrollwork on a violin (pencil), and my lunch pail and coffee mug (pencil).
Hope you enjoy them!
