#365DaysOf ArtPBQChallenge – Week 11 – Exercises 71-77

71:  Add shadows to the glass bottles.  Try different ways of drawing them.

I found this one to be fun.  Not sure I found a lot of different ways of drawing them.

72:  Create a design or pattern
I enjoyed this one too.  Did a rather larger design as I had less time than I would have liked, but I found it pretty much fun.

73:  Add trees to this half page.
I took Sherry’s approach and did the trunks first this time.  I liked that better.


74:Draw the weather today.
Good thing it was a sunny day with clouds.  The nor’easter this week would have been blank!  I really just gave this a passing sketch – very fast and not really dark enough.

75:Draw something that you have seen today.
OK – I did this Sunday not Friday when we were in Maine.  A bit of the coastline – I am no Winslow Homer-  but I liked doing it.

76.  Draw an object using colored pencils.  Use the background as a mid-tone.  Use light colors to draw the highlights and darker colors to draw the shadows.
I did a strawberry.  I enjoyed this but the lights were hard to get to work. I think this may be my best work this week.

77:  Explore colors that look good together.  Fill in with colors that work well as a group.
Of course, I would like this – whats not to like about working with color for a quilter.

All in all, a pretty good week in the drawing world. I do need to take these pictures as I go and in the daylight.  My apologies.

In my quilting life:
I worked on quilt with a new technique for my #IslandBatikAmbassador as well as working on my OMG – the loon.  I am nearly finished both, so we’ll see which I blog about first!

    Hi Kathleen,The Nor’easter will be bringing us some snow too. Glad you had a pretty shoreline to draw before it comes! Your strawberry is so pretty. I love to look at your different art work every week 🙂

      Yup, the winter of our discontent!!! Once again left Maine early due to a Nor'easter coming in. Gheez – they are just not giving up. But, I will have a good day to blog a few things, 2 projects done and a couple on the horizon! I was pretty pleased with that strawberry!

      Thanks, Nancy. I have gotten a little delayed here by a major computer meltdown – lost two days so sorry for the late response. I am being a bit easier on myself about them and doing what I want. The one week I didn't blog and that is okay by me! I so appreciate your comments and visits.

I love hearing from you and try to reply promptly to each comment.
