3 Days to go...365 Days of Drawing...


There's was an old song in the UK recorded in the 1980's by the band The Gang of Four called: "I love a man in a uniform..." That was the catchy main lyric anyways.

Well, I couldn't agree more. So darn dapper and dignified. The more gold braid and shiny brass buttons, the better

Yesterday's drawing...three more to go...

Lovely sketch Johanna, is that white pastel on coloured paper?

I can't believe anyone would not be inspired by your challenge... WOW...

I like your new challenge though and look forward to seeing it as it progresses. Also like your guy in brass buttons.

I did mention you in my last post. I'll actually miss seeing your regular sketches. Happy New Year, Johanna!

A very dignified piece of art, Johanna. I recently was looking at old photos of my dad in uniform during WWII.
