SEEING RED...365 Days of Drawing

I mentioned a few weeks ago how I need to get to the hair salon. Well, I finally made it today and while I was having a high-light touch-up, I decided to waste no time reading a dog-eared People Magazine like I usually do there but copy an Anders Zorn drawing with a red BIC pen.

My love affair with both, Zorn and Bic, continues Not with my hair tho'. What I am learning from copying this master's etchings is indescribable. I have done a few now in the year's challenge and plan to do more.

To see yesterday's drawing tune in tomorrow when it will be posted with the finished painting.

What makes you see red?

Wonderful drawing. It's not the drawing instrument but the one holding the instrument that makes it beautiful.

Karen Bruson said...

Beautiful drawing and I love the red.

Thank you Kelley. What a lovely thing to say!

Thank you Karen. One of the joys of this drawing challenge has been discovering how much I like to draw with a simple pen on canvas without a safety net/eraser.

Your drawing skills are absolutely extraordinary! Love all the quick line work and the fact that you did it with a red Bic makes me love it all the more. :)
