Long time no blog.
I want to thank everyone for the encouraging comments left on my last post when I left for a hiatus. It really made me feel inspired and appreciated!
As for this blog, I will continue posting art and ramblings on here and I hope you continue to follow. It will no longer be a daily challenge but just a place for me to archive my work.
I have done a couple of drawings on my break and I felt much better doing them since I wasn’t feeling pressured.
So without further ado, here they are:
I think the last time I put some time and effort into making a Mandala was a couple of years ago. I found my tutorial and wanted to give it a go.
Therefore I thought headphones would be an appropriate subject.
I did this drawing by request. You know who you are.
P.s. Drawing a Ferris wheel is hard!
I haven’t been feeling very creative today. Kind of in a weird funk. So when it came time to do my project for the day I really didn’t have a clue on what to make. I would have preferred to get myself lost in a book for the rest of the evening. Then I got a little nudge from my friend to attempt one of the drawing challenges she had suggested to me (remember the drawing with the less dominant hand, drawing with one continuous line?). Then another friend suggested I draw a watermelon. I didn’t have a subject of my own so why not? For the challenge I drew with one eye closed (my right). With the change in perspective I had trouble making the shape of the watermelon. I felt like the world was a bit tilted along with the drawing. I colored it with one eye also. That was easier. I did get caught up in the one eyeness so when I was done I forgot to open it. It has been a long day.
Fun watermelon fact: it is said to originate from South Africa. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watermelon
So we have a few tomato plants in the garden and unfortunately they don’t look like this. I believe they have some sort of fungus. I wish they looked like this drawing but it’s not happening and it’s making me sad.
I was watching a couple of documentaries about the brain last night and am captivated by the beauty of it. The brain is a magnificent thing.
