15 in 15

So my new school has an annual Art Survivor event called 15 in 15. It entails completing a drawing a day for 15 school days. Last week was week 1, and the theme was "things that start with 'a'." I did an apple still life, an apron, an angel, amethyst jewelry, and an asymmetrical shirt. My apple still life was the first drawing I turned it. I only spent about 15 minutes on it b/c that's all I had. As I was going to put it up, I see the quality of the other art teachers. It makes my apple still life very inadequate. I went back to room and added some color to make it better. I slowly turned in better and better drawings as the week went along. It's been so long since I've drawn anything b/c I spent most of the summer sewing and painting.

Week two's theme is "things that start with 'r'." I've done a ring, ruffled dress and ruffled top. I really like drapery if you couldn't tell. Even though this commitment is super-hard, I'm really enjoying getting back to my art roots of drawing all the time. I like the fact that this event teaches the kids that if you want to be good and get better at drawing, you HAVE to constantly practice! Here are some of my "r" drawings!

  3. I use to draw all the time, and then sometime after college...I stopped. I look back at my portfolio on occasion and do wish I could find time to start up again. But, if I had a choice between going out for a run, or drawing...I would probably always choose the run.
