I send best wishes to all of my viewers that you are healthy and being mindful of safe guidelines in this difficult and trying time of COVID-19.
Since our life drawing group is not meeting I don’t have any figure drawings to share. My friend and artistic mentor, Shari Blaukopf has posted wonderful household sketches on her blog. Being stuck at home like so many others, she has inspired me to do the same. It is her suggestion that drawing whatever is in front of you is good practice in learning to “see” as an artist. With that in mind I thought it would be fun to do a series of drawings of several varied chairs in our house. It gives me a subject for drawing and a chance to get back to using pen & ink and watercolor. The two sketches below were done with a platinum carbon pen and watercolor in a 5 1/2″ x 8″ Strathmore mixed media Visual Journal. I hope to add more drawings of our chairs and other household items soon.
