P&I Monthly Challenge - JULY

Welcome to our STILL NEW monthly challenge - for JULY! (you'll find us here)

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).... 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.
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!***********

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

Your suggestions for July:

old slippers/shoes
some kind of bag(handbag/purse(in the US), rucksack, shopper etc.
man-made object with corners
a jacket - on hook or chair
Trees, full or cropped close-up
Birds and Bees
a bird feeder drawn from life, and then feel free to put in a bird on it from recollection or imagination
a single leaf
hand holding something

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