A Drawing A Day – Week 16

My theme has been tulips this week (and last week), tulipomania has struck the depths of Suffolk.  I only have one clump of tulips in the garden and I sacrificed them all for the sake of Art.  I have not been finding the the time to do ‘botanicals’ what with ‘a drawing a day’ and the rest of life intervening so this week I combined them with my series of tulip drawings.  I am also happy that life drawing classes have resumed although not so happy that they are in the evening as I am already tired before I even start.  Still a new teacher (Ed Cooper) made for a change of ideas and I ended up doing one drawing left-handed – a very interesting experiment.  I also produced a shockingly bad picture of my house which looks like a baby drew it, the proportions are so wrong its laughable, I seem to have an issue with consistency……sometimes I feel I am improving and then bang!

    Your tulips are fantastic and your life drawings are looking great. I agree your cottage is not your best work, sometimes things just go wrong, but full points to you for sharing the highs and lows of your sketching week. Karen

    Make no mistake about it, your drawing ability is getting better and better. Love the seated woman and your tulips, especially the second one. I am relieved to see that I am not the only one who draws houses like a child, but I am sure we will get there!
