I’ve been making plenty of marks and haven’t had the time to update my blog daily because of it.  But here they are with the live model drawings first:

30-Day Drawing Marathon: Days 5, 6, & 7

I should really call this a Doodle Marathon considering that’s really what I’m doing.   Here they are, shown from the most recent to the oldest, per blog style:

Apparently, I’ve been thinking a lot about clowns and other weird creatures.  I don’t know where these doodles come from but they have been a lot of fun!!

30-Day Drawing Marathon: Days 3 & 4

It’s a two-fer one today.  I didn’t get a chance to upload my daily doodle yesterday due to my scanner malfunctioning.  Fortunately, I had the insight to turn it off and back on again (no I didn’t kick it though I thought about it).

Here’s Day 3:

Vulcan / Elf / Keanu Reeves - like person

I don’t know where these doodles come from, which is half the fun. Sometimes I just start with a random mark that ends up reminding me of something that I then just play with.

It will be very interesting to see how these doodles progress on Day 30…

30-Day Drawing Marathon: Day 2

Here’s day 2, a quick doodle in my journal. My 5-year old scanner is showing its age, making the scan of this sketch not so very good. I used a ball point pen, one of my favorite tools for drawing because it can show tonal quality just by adjusting pen pressure on the page. Unfortunately the scanner did not pick up any of the gray tones. Boo!

Anyway, here she is. I don’t know where she came from, nor why she ended being a cross between a harlequin clown and that woman with the fruit on her head – although that’s not quite fruit on her head.

She came out of nowhere

Drawing without a reference (whether from life or photos) is new territory for me. A little scary even though this one was quite fun!
