Drawing 249

I am swinging by to share another drawing challenge photo.  This is EDM drawing challenge 249 which prompts us to draw a coffee pot. This is an old copper pot my father had. The pot is no longer functional as the tin lining is damaged and there are a number of dents in it now. Click the image and you see a larger version.

I used Faber Castell Pitt pens, watercolour paint and Derwent watercolour pencils to do the exercise .

item on deskThese exercises to draw items on a list of prompts do prevent me wandering about the place looking for something to draw. I just find something, plonk it down on my work table and get on with it. The main thing for me is to practice draw from life.  Its’ a bit like a musician doing scales – drawing from life regularly helps keep my eye in. It does not matter what it is I draw. The drawing does not have to have any deep and meaningful message. The object can be part of my life but that is it.

Here is  the EDM challenge list . Scroll to see my efforts. The Every Day Matters drawing challenge has a flickr group and Facebook page.

    Sharon – the copper colour you have developed on the coffee pot is wonderful. I am forwarding the details of EDM to my youngest grand daughter. She starts her degree course on Textiles in Birmingham next week and was encouraged to draw as much as possible when she did her foundation course in Falmouth. Thank you for sharing it with us.
    All good wishes A
