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 0 Comments

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.
