"A-Drawing-A-Day," Week 3

Week 3 of Veronica Lawlor's class was about drawing with color. I used crayons and colored pencils while doodling on paper.   -->

Then I tried out crayons and Derwent Inktense pencils on white cotton fabric. No idea what I'll do with it...


The next assignment was drawing a subject with crayons using its "real" colors (left, I picked a rather colorful succulent) and then drawing it using everything but the colors in the first sketch.

More crayons and colored pencils: the clouds in a storm and at sunrise. Given the cold weather, I had to work from photos.

A "coloring book" lesson was fun: draw a bowl of fruit (mandarine oranges) in black felt pen, then use as many colors as possible.

To finish the week, sketches of a colorful area. Once again the cold weather kept me inside, so I used my photos of Tunis: the main street (top left), the Medina (lower left), and the Cathedral. I enjoyed using crayons, and will try out the possibilities on fabric later.

I can tell you were really enjoying working with all the colours! You mentioned trying crayons on fabric - oddly enough that exact thing came up on one of the other blogs I read and she noted that she used white crayon on the fabric before adding colour. Not sure what the premise was behind it.
