I took my pencils to work with me today and worked on some drawing during breaks and those odd moments in the day, like while waiting on hold...
Here is my ATC for Day 12 of Project 365. This one is titled "speckled pear." Composed on bristol board with a prismacolor marker base and then layer after layer of prismacolor pencils.
Others in the Project, and on the site where I trade my cards have been creating beautiful fruit still lifes and I couldn't resist giving it a whirl. I really enjoyed it and the result wasn't too bad...I think I'll be doing more along this line. It's good practice for realistic drawing.
In fact, I enjoyed it enough that I also made the card below, titled "crisp apple," made in the same manner with marker underneath the layers of pencil.
I got a late start on the project to create a card each day, so I'm going to insert this one as a makeup card for day 1. I'll need to do that a few more times to end up with the full count.
If you want to check out the cards made by the other participating artists, visit the sponsor site Naked Heart Art. Lots of wonderful eye candy on the project coordinator's blog!
Okay, time to go relax a bit...
Wishing you sunshine!
