Going Back to the Basics

….I haven’t posted any art in awhile

My life has been in a bit of a turmoil lately and I find it difficult to find time to work on my bigger art projects. Not having my space to work in doesn’t help either but I have managed to do some small daily drawing assignments in the last six days.

Lisa Congden is the artist who is challenging her followers to draw simple objects every day for 31 days.ย Lisa Congden from Creative Bugย is a graphic and textile designer who hosts numerous on-line classes at this site. For a very small monthly fee you can access numerous how to videos for lots of DIY projects.

Here are some of the drawings from the first six days. I need to work on my sneaker skills.

    • I think you might be surprised at how easy it is. A long time ago an art instructor told me that there are no mistakes in art. A blooper simply takes your art in a different direction. This notion was life changing for me when it comes to art. I now try to teach children to not erase or cross out work that they think is a mistake. Embrace it and work around it. So much more fun.

      • I will try to draw with that advice in mind. Perhaps the way I envision isn’t always the way intended. There is more than one way after all, and the pen may know more than me about where it wants to go ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I taught my grade ones how to draw those leaves. They loved it and at one point it was so quiet in the room that their homeroom teacher and I looked at each other in disbelief. I encouraged them to design their own leaf shape and they didn’t disappoint.


    • Thanks. They are pretty easy to reproduce. Now I need to come up with some of my own designs. When I ask my grade ones to do that they have no problem designing their own unique leaf or tree.
