I’ve recently discovered these ‘EveryDay Matters’ drawing challenges at artist and author Danny Gregory’s blog. I don’t draw for the sake of drawing very often – usually it’s just preparation for something else – and I’m enjoying it. Here’s what I’ve done so far:
Biro and gold acrylic paint on journal page. The writing in the background is where I tried listing the drawing challenges by hand before I realised how many there were! The shoes are professional latin dance shoes I bought in a charity shop. I don’t dance, but the movie ‘Strictly Ballroom’ makes me wish I did.
Biro on journal page. I started getting into the challenge at this point.
Biros and coloured pencil on sketchbook page. The nearest mug happened to be the Yorkie ‘It’s Not For Girls’ mug in which I stand my make-up brushes along with miscellaneous pens.
Biro and coloured pencil on pre-stained sketchbook page. My favourite drawing so far.
