If you haven't read about it so far, theres a bunch of Art teachers reading and drawing along with One Drawing a Day. Below you will find my first... and second attempts of the first three days.
First I set up a still life. eh. I have just started to draw with pen and this was an okay attempt.
A couple of days later I was inspired to draw our beloved "Blue Chair" to redeem myself.
The next day was a challenge with pen and ink. At the time I didn't have one, so I used a pen I had from my textile design days, meant to be used with guache. I loaded it up with slightly watered down green watercolor.
I bought pen and ink at this point, but the pen's nib was broken and rather erratic. I managed to get a satisfying drawing of my boyfriend's hands. Then, trying to subdue the pressure, I drew my boyfriend's face while he was watching the end of the most recent Super Man movie. This time I dipped the end of a shish kabob skewer in ink. I was able to control the ink much more easily. Can you tell he is wearing a hoodie and in the blue chair from Day One?
