Everyday matters Drawing challenge #133

sketch of a peachI felt I could not let summer pass without drawing some our wonderful stone fruits. I love peaches and I think it shows.

This little drawing exercise is rendered in watercolour paints, Faber Castell artist pitt pen, and my Lamy pen which is loaded with De Atramentis Permanent Ink. This ink is suitable for fountain pens yet waterproof. It is bit of find as many waterproof inks and Indian ink will block and often destroy a fountain pen.  I am currently using a Strathmore  mixed media sketchbook. I created the flesh of the peach texture by dabbing a bit of tissue on it while the paint was wet

Fortunately this is also a drawing prompt on the Every Day matters list as #133 reads draw a peach!  I also found another facebook group called A sketch a Day which has a daily prompt. Day 2 is of a piece of fruit so if I want to play catch up this fits the bill too.  I have joined the group but I am not sure I will catch up and then keep up as I am already bounding around a couple of challenges. I have to admit to using them for very selfish purposes which if you have not guessed my personal goal is to draw from life regularly. I am trying to establish the habit and stay in the routine.

Also for those who are not on Facebook much – the facebook groups are great. Blogs are still my thing but to reach out to people who have similar interests and share with them what you are doing groups are great. Just about everything else on Facebook bores me silly but the groups are fun.

    I would at once eat it. I love the skin, too.

  2. Yum, delicious! Would love to try the De Atramentis Ink. I believe it’s now available here. And you are right about FB!

      Thanks Jules if you get the De Atramentis ink make sure it is the type that is marked permanent – as that is the waterproof sort. The other range is not.
