So my post last night was a little controversial. Actually not that much, and I was pleased to get all the support comments, but I heard from one of the featured "Sketchbook Challenge" artists who seemed a little huffed that I expressed some disappointment in what I'd seen. I felt bad that she took my remarks personally and I let her know that and she responded that I had misunderstood what the Sketchbook Challenge was about. It is not about drawing. It is about sketchbooks.
Well, anyway, I am still on board and drawing. Lots of other folks are drawing too. More today. Still lots doing what I would call journaling. In sketchbooks. I guess. Whatever.
Here's today's drawing.
Gerrie rolling her eyes and groaning! "Do I have to see this again?!")
Today was also the first day of the "Silly Drawing" class. I printed out my worksheet and did my homework. Here's my homework.
The puppy that is circled in red was printed on the sheet. The assignment was to use our non-dominant hand and copy the puppy as many times as we could in about five minutes. Well, the silly part is how impaired you feel drawing with the wrong hand! I know it looks pretty mild and not all that interesting, but you really do get a different sense of line and control. See that one at the bottom right? He's my favorite. I was finally gaining a little domination over my spazzy left hand.
And to round out my "good student" day, I finished my 12 x 12 quilt that will be revealed on January 12. (we gave ourselves a little extra time because of the holidays.) I can't show you the whole thing before the reveal, but here is a teensy peek.
