EDM Challenge Drawings 58 and 167

A few more challenge sketches done last week. Both are done as part of the EDM drawing challenge.  The first is EDM # 58 Draw a hat, cap or other headgear. This is Jerry’s  hat. It is only a little bashed about. This sketch was done in a Strathmore mixed media sketchbook which is 5.5 in x 8.5 in (14 x 21.6 cm) using artist pitt pens, Derwent watercolour pencils, and watercolour paint

The second drawing is for EDM challenge 167 Draw something that need fixing. Jerry changed the spark plugs on his motor bike as one was not working. I sketched the spark plug. For this drawing I used pen and ink. I have never sketched a spark plug before – in fact I have managed to get well into my 50’s and not had to really look at one so it was an interesting exercise!

That said, they are here as I am crossing off each prompt off the EDM list.

  1. Ooh nice hat! The spread looks really good across the pages! And the spark plug is very effective, I do like the background, and the subtle grey tones contrast so well with the linear quality of the plug.

  2. Two fun drawings Sharon. Every different item stretches those observation muscles a bit more! Funny coincidence we were just checking the same Strathmore journals out at the art shop today.

      The Strathmore Journals are really lovely- the trouble is I don’t think I would buy any of the cheaper brands again after using one and sine I write and draw I would just chew through them.

    I must ask Drazen whats a spark plug -he certainly has one – but ok, he wouldn’t know anything about milliners needles or stranded floss, ha! And yes, of course, he even knows the English name but doesn’t need any, as we are driving a Diesel.
