I’ve received challenges from two separate great bloggers and thought, okay it’s time for me to join in the fun. The challenges are slightly different, but my drawings will accomplish the goal for both challenges.
#1 I was tagged to do a 3-pieces of art a day for 5-days, Art Challenge, by Tim Livingston at The Forester Artist. Tim is an incredible artist, you will enjoy what you find at his blog. I decided to accept the challenge.
#2 Next I was tagged to participate in a 5-day B&W challenge, by posting one new B&W each day. Sylvia of Anotherdaytoparadise. I’m accepting this challenge by combining with Tim’s 3-pieces of art a day for 5 days. Sylvia has the most incredible photography that I think you’ll appreciate the awesome subjects she captures with her lens.
Day 2 – my three drawings today concentrated on similar values, light and reflections. Each piece was done in charcoal measuring 5×7. Don’t laugh at my results now – as I don’t draw or paint fast, today I imposed up to a half-hour limit for each drawing in the challenge(s) – my personal objective is to see the subject more as forms and values than anything else, so I expect perspective and technicals to be off.

I would love to see brushespapers join in on the challenge. Her blog is, brushespapers she’s an incredible artist specializing in Chinese painting, stays disciplined to her artistry by painting and drawing everyday – her collection is awesome.
