#MadeForSale exhibition

Last month I was hard at work with a large ballpoint pen drawing of JP Joule for the #MadeForSale exhibition.

I wanted to create different textures with the ballpoint pen to show the smoothness of the statue and then more texture with the feathers on Colin (corvid)

The exhibition is on until 5th August at the Waterside Arts Centre.

Here is a work in progress shot and the finished piece.

This is the last days’ artwork from the 14 day drawing challenge and the theme was movement. We were allowed to choose from a selection of images and this one really captured my eye. The first couple of sketches were done in 60 seconds and 5 mins and the full piece took 1 hour to complete.  This was one of my favourite drawings of the challenge.

The 14 day drawing challenge

This challenge kept me drawing no matter what… I made time and space to do them. Through this process I realized just how much time I spend looking for subjects to draw… wouldn’t it be great just to be supplied  images like these everyday 😉

Here are days 10-13

 

 

The 14 Day Drawing Challenge

I’ve recently joined a challenge by United Art Space to draw for 14 consecutive days in February. They provide the photos (which is a real treat and I look forward to daily), there are also a few time options of which I have chosen 60 seconds, 5 mins & 60 mins sketches.

Here are my drawings for the first 5 days, the themes were:

Day 1 – Contrast       Day 2 – Tone         Day 3 – Composition         Day 4 -Negative space             Day 5 – Shadow

Thank you to Taton Tubbs who provide the images and United Art Space for the great challenge. Looking forward to sketching some more.
