Another Upside Down Drawing

Wrinkled Woman, Ink in Moleskin, 6.27.09

I found this image on flickr, and she had so many interesting wrinkles I thought she would be great for this exercise. Not really, she came out pretty scary looking.

Portrait of a man

Portrait of a Man, Micron Pen, 6.24.09

So somewhere on I found a video where Danny drew portraits upside down. Here it is, have a look... I found a random portrait on flickr for my subject. Drawing upside down allows you to try to forget the familiar facial features that you are used to looking at, and instead draw the shapes and lines that you see. I really enjoyed creating this.

View from Window

View from Window, Ink on notepad, 6.23.09

I drew this from my window at work. I started with a sharpie because that was what I had sitting next to me, but I did not like how thick the lines were and how you could not obtain any details. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I had a micron pen with me, so I was able to finish it out with that. I would love to add some color.

Trip to Ptown - 6.18 - 6.21

Ptown, Ink (6.21.09)

My husband and I traveled to Cape Cod this past weekend. We took the train to Boston where my cousin picked us up and then traveled on to Provincetown. There is a lot of art everywhere there, it was great and inspirational. I drew this page on the long travel day home. It was drawn on the train which was very shaky...

EDM#133-Draw a Peach

Peach, EDM#133, 6.09, Ink & Watercolor Pencils

Just a drawing done for an EDM challenge. Was waiting around for my husband to get home so we could go out. I did not have a peach on hand, so I drew from a photo online. I love peaches...mmmmmmm.

Bark Park

Bark Park, 5.09, Ink & Watercolors

This was an illustration done while on a walk to a local bark park. I was sitting on a bench across the pond from the area where the dogs can roam free. It is always fun to watch them play. This was a quick sketch because it was getting cold out.
