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.
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.
We were in a severe thunderstorm warning so I took advantage and made that my inspiration. Just a quick little drawing to pass the time while the storm rolled through.
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.
Another random creation. Done at 4 on the morning. Yep.
