Great Coffee

Had a great coffee here on my way to draw the skaters.

One Drawing A Day 34 Loose ink, like in a bottle, and bamboo pen, on location at Riverview Hospital near my home. This was the provincial mental hospital but now many old buildings, including this one are closed. For January in Coquitlam this was a fairly warm day so I walked, over sat in my portable chair under a big tree and drew. I used ordinary fountain pen ink, quite runny. I think india ink would be better. These exercises really do get you out of your rut!

ODAD done here!

My drawing table.


One Drawing a Day 27. On watercolor paper, 11 x 15", watercolor, pastel, color pencil and Derwent Inktense pencils which I like. I really like the graphic, illustration look of this book and my drawings from the exercises. If you like that type of art check out www.studio1482.com/ get the book and enjoy!

ODAD 27 in progress.

These One Drawing A Day exercises are fun, get you out of your usual practice. I like this as it is, who knows what the finished drawing will be like? Stay tuned.

Any palm readers in the house?

I like the graphic effect of the bamboo pen.
