First drawing in the new SB!

Coco Milk 2007/12/31 EDM Challenge #7 Draw a Bottle, jar or tin from the kitchen. I finally found the challenge list at Flickr, so had to run out today and purchase a sketch book. First drawing in the new SB! This was rather enjoyable as I was able to use water colours, markers, pastels and pencils all in one. Icky perspective but all in all I’m pleased.

Snowy Morning

Col Mitchell Contemporary Paper Artist About Me Leave a Comment

2007/12/30 Just finished this one. We had some beautiful snowfall scenes in our backyard last winter. This is my interpretation from a photo I took. I love snow, but dang it is difficult for me to draw. My 12 yr old son wanted to know what it was a picture of. He guessed branches. Close enough! (It is slightly more luminescent in the photo here than the original.) Aquabee Hemp paper, Stabilo pastel pencils 708, 704,105, Lyra Rembrandt 309 & Conte A Paris HB stick, black 18 Factis eraser, paper stump

First dabble with the new materials.

Eagerly anticipated treats fresh from their Christmas wrappers: Assorted pencils, papers, erasers, and smudging sticks. I haven’t dipped my hands in the good stuff for a long long time. Very enjoyable. Here’s my first dabble with the new materials.
