Walk the walk? 365 Days of Drawing


What's that phrase...walk the walk, do the talk?

On this drawing it was all about the movement for me. I almost cut my drawing moment short when I mistook the lovely cold lemon-infues beer I was drinking for the gouache water.

Gouache water doesn't taste that good - let me tell you. Hope there is no lead in it. Otherwise this challenge could be cut way short.

Johanna, I have a habit of making a cup of tea...then perching myself at my artist table to paint...can't tell you how many times I have washed my brush in my tea cup!! thankfully, I have yet to take a swig of my wash water!!! Things have gotten better once I made a note to put the tea cup on the left and the wash water on the right....but you know how the artist can be when in the zone....Great Strides in this drawing :)

Oh, I have done that with 99% alcohol in a cup while doing Makeup....have learned to never have open liquids on my Makeup Station while working!

I like the movement in this one.

Julie, you must have a bit of English in you drinking all that tea...first for me swiging brush cleaner. I guess this challenge, doing so much of it at night, around relaxing, rather than in the studio, there might be more problems ahead. A cup of tea is always the answer to everything.
