drawing practice . . .
I'm continuing to draw the next Everyday Matters challenges just to practice. Like any skill, if you don't use it, you lose it. It is much easier to capture an image when I want to if I have been keeping up with daily drawing.
The above images have one thing in common: none of them can be drawn from life because we don't have any of them in our home. We no longer eat bread so no toast. I don't particularly like the color orange so nothing in our house is orange and I'm fresh out of real oranges. And we don't buy bottles water. So I drew all of these from online photos.
Continuing the drawing practice, I just drew what I could see in front of my at church yesterday. And no, this looks nothing like our pastor --- blame it on his moving around too much. A mighty lion who can not be contained in one spot. (The quote at the bottom of the page has nothing to do with the sermon; I just read it a few days ago and jotted it down in my journal.)
