EDM#24 draw some fruit


Well, I'm not too sure how I feel about this so I'll just post it before I change my mind. It certainly isn't how I envisaged it when I began, but hey, I guess that's what happens when you get lost in a drawing!

I'm charmed by it, especially the spots.

Now this is different! So much texture and great shape. What did you use?

Oh gosh Andrea, is this pencil? I love the shape of this pear -- it's almost human, leaning a bit to the side. And i do love the spots too!
Hooray for getting lost in a drawing.

Cheers guys!
I'm still not sure about this but it's too late now! It's all ballpoint, nothing else at all.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Love, Andrea.

Oh goodness, it's pen.
You mentioned something on Suzanne's blog with resonated (again) in me -- how meditative drawing can be. "Getting lost" or losing track of time, or forgetting to eat -- all these things happen when we get so absorbed in a drawing. It's such a unique, peaceful, stress-relieving experience. Looking at the execution of your drawings, i can totally see them having that effect. In turn, they encourage me to go ahead and take my time for a new one.
Good stuff, Andrea.

I'm still not too sure about it.

Fabulous! It's hypnotic!

Alison said...

Well, thank you both! Jana it's funny you should say that about it being hypnotic because sometimes that's exactly how I feel when I get into a drawing. Cheers!
