Lightbulb P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Welcome to our STILL NEW? monthly challenge - for SEPTEMBER!

Many apologies for the lateness of this thread - I've been away!

We're continuing our Drawing from Life challenge in Pen and Ink and hope many will join us!

DRAWING FROM LIFE (when it is at all possible)...Why? .....because we learn better from studying actual scenes, people and objects rather than looking at flat, 2D images.

Drawing from Life is -

1. More challenging! – well, ‘monthly challenge’ IS the name of this thread.
2. More educational - undoubtedly the vital artistic skills of close observation, selecting which important features of the subject to emphasise, choosing the best angle from which to view etc. are all keenly honed through the process of life drawing in a way that is not possible with a photo.
3. It’s FUN - you never quite know how it will turn out! Drawing should always be an exciting journey of exploration and discovery!

Someone once wrote - "Photography freezes the moment whilst drawing captures the moment"
Let's capture our own personal and individual moments and share them here on this thread!

*********NOW – here’s where you do your part – as well as your drawing, of course!
As you post your own drawing in this thread, please then also suggest ONE subject/topic for next month. One entry = One suggestion for September .... another entry? - another suggestion!
By the end of the month we should have a range of ideas from which you can choose – and please do feel free to discuss any of the suggestions raised: who knows, you may even start keeping your own private list for future ideas!***********

One important rule -Entries must be at least 75% pen and ink in any colour - and wash or colour may be added.

Your suggestions for September:

something green.

building

liquid

a small comic strip

plumbing fixture

Pushchair or pram

Pet or other animal

trees and autumn leaves

Musical instrument



Pens at the ready? ....... Ink close by? .......... Ready, steady, ............ GO!!!!!!!!!

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Mine wasn’t still very long! After that I was drawing from memory.

My dog Cricket, on 9x12 pad but more like 5x9. Drawn with prismacolor pen and Pitt medium size pen.



Suggestion for October: a tool or group of tools.

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

I like the way you have subtly varied the tones in & around the eyes, it has worked most effectively to capture the intensity of his gaze.

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Bonnie... lot of movement in your sketch and I like the way you have framed it.

Logan... nice expression on Cricket's face!

My sketch is of a building interior. It is the waiting room at a dentist's that I visited yesterday

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Tanya - good drawing of Cricket and his 'dogitude' expression! He's definitely growing impatient with the posing!!! Nice variety of marks for all the textures.

Blah - hope the waiting wasn't too stressful - or the treatment!!

I like this sketch of the building interior - very assured drawing!

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Thank you Maureen. No the waiting wasn't stressful (I was happily sketching away), nor the treatment since my mother was the patient.

My apologies for missing out on a suggestion for next month. I suggest: Any type of vehicle.

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Bonnie - I love the movement in your sketch
Logan - Wow! That is a lovely sketch, you've captured his expression
Blah - great perspective and I love the figures.

Here's the musical instrument. I hope I can play my guitar better than I've drawn it.




Drawn in Seawhite A4 sketchbook using UniPin 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0

Re: P&I Monthly Challenge - September

Ron - I think the guitar parts are pretty good drawings! - you've done well with the perspective of the body of the instrument.

I do hope it isn't really in bits!!!!!!!!
