#drawvember: days 21-30

3 Dec

These ten drawings conclude #drawvember. Each took me more or less time, depending on how long I could take, or the sort of drawing I was keen on making. I can’t make time to draw everyday in December so I’ll take a break after an enjoyable two-month sprint. 


Day 21: Three Musketeers. As seen in the Air France in flight magazine, an ad for a show, I believe. Turquoise, yellow and crimson watercolour applied with a drawing pen.

Day 22: Caracasablanca. As seen again in an ad in the Air France in flight magazine. Toucan overlooking rainforest and desert dunes which five camels climb. Watercolour.

Day 29: Batik. As seen in the Kaili Ethnic Minorities Museum in China, province of Guizhou, last April. That drawing took me nearly 3 hours. Black ink drawing of batik fabric patterns: fish, flowers and leaves, using a black Uni pin pen and Pentel Brushpen.

Day 30: Nude woman reclining, seen from the back. After Van Gogh. I had precious little time for the last day. A quick pencil sketch on a small surface of the art book and I then used a black Uni pin pen (0.1 mm). Nude woman reclining, seen from the back. After Van Gogh
Goulwen thought the inking wasn’t right, but then he’s a specialist and I’m not. I asked if he’d show us and he did! Beautifully.
