EDM Challenge 133: draw some seasonal fruit
Can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! I've been busy with two projects but also because my mother decided at the last-minute to make a visit, leaving me to run around like a headless chicken cleaning up house!! No matter how 'mature' we get, mothers are still and will always be mothers ... got to have the home clean and pretty for them! :D
Now that my mother and her husband are here though, the pressure is off and I finally have time to sit down and draw. My mum is great, she's was the very first good influence on my artistic life, encouraging me when I was very very young and copying from comic books, and is still is a major influence in my life where my art (and much more!) is concerned, so it's wonderful to have her here now that I'm drawing again.
And I've signed up for beginner's classes in oils and acrylics! Yay. Had my very first oil painting class today and learned about mixing colours and loved the feel of the luscious paints against the canvas strips we were practising on. Am so looking forward to these classes, I feel as though a whole new world is opening up.
I'll leave you with my lemons drawing. They are in season here in Australia now, apparently ... though my wee trees aren't producing anything as yet. You may notice that I've taken some creative license on the leaves ... :) There's a reason for that, and I will explain it eventually ... Cheers!
