I am still trying to carve out time from a busy day to draw. This is EDM drawing challenge #116 Draw something green. This twig is from one of the many types of eucalyptus that are in the district. I am always fascinated by Aussie native flora as usually you can see the complimentary colour in them too. Click on the image above to see a larger photo.
I used coloured pencil, graphitint pencil, watercolour pencil and pitt pens.
The EDM list is good if you get stumped for ideas of what to draw. The prompt list also helps get past the impression that every drawing must be deep and meaningful to be worth doing. Such a list effectively says it is OK to draw in order to practice observation.
Thing is … as much as I hate to admit it, I wont gain much by drawing once a week as drawing practice needs to be done a little more frequently at least every second day or so for it to be really effective. Drawing is like anything the you put in the more you get out of it. Now I just have to learn to take my own advice!
Grr … that regularity has not been happening. My excuse is that it is spring and I have been weeding!
