Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
Holy smokes folks, I’m cutting it close today! But as you can see, artwork #177 did get created (pat on the back for this girl).
Last night, long after the sun had gone down, I grabbed a few interesting dried flower buds from a little bowl that is decorating the house I’m staying in. I laid them out on the table and did a small drawing. The buds’ structures were really neat and oddly sturdy – so strong, in fact, that I think you’d break a tooth if you decided to bite down on them. Luckily, I stuck to drawing.
Upon finishing the initial study of the little buds, I decided it would be interesting to break each of the structures up into sections and add color for a bit of dimension. I finished off the graphic little drawing by adding a wash of green watercolor to the background.
It’s a bit of an odd drawing- especially the juxtaposition of the strange green wash next to the clean ink work- but luckily I am a fan of odd things.
