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.
