I have to confess that I drew the bowl and thought it absolutely pathetic, one of my worst attempts. Almost didn't post it at all but remembered my resolution to post everything no matter how it turned out ... so I fiddled with it a bit, added the background and it's improved; I still don't like it much but it's better than it was before, sigh.
It's a painted enamel bowl. I added the lime as it seemed so empty with nothing in it. I won't make any excuses such as I'm feeling rushed and in the middle of another project, or that I decided that I'd been ignoring my home too much so finally got some gardening done and gave my dogs a well-needed scrub, cleaned up etc etc etc. Nope, I won't use those as excuses :) Will just keep at the drawing practice!
And thank you everyone for such encouraging comments, I always feel that I will finally have the time to reciprocate properly and reply to messages or start visiting new sites, but I'm running out of hours in the day! Soon ...
For EDM challenge 29: draw something architectural
I used to have so much free time, I should have appreciated it more :). Have two deadlines by Tuesday and an all day workshop tomorrow so am feeling slightly stressed for time. But I'd started this yesterday so I added a few finishing touches today in order to post it.
I took loads of photos of buildings, doorways, etc for this challenge as it interested me. But ended up fine-tuning it down to the more detailed image ... I loved the look of these steps, so drew them instead. One of these days I'll tackle some of the others though, I really like the idea of doing the architectural scenes. Off to sleep now!
I bought this chair at a second-hand store; it has a saggy cushion and sits really close to the floor ... it's SO comfortable! I took a photograph so that I could settle down in front of the television at night in order to finish it off, as it sits out on the deck overlooking the garden. I really enjoyed drawing this one.
BTW that little purple blob by the bottom right chair leg is a cat toy :)
