#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 3 – the three drawings today concentrated on flowers, working those values and light. Each piece was done in charcoal measuring 5×8. I imposed up to an hour limit for each drawing in the challenge(s) mainly because the subject is not something I’m used to drawing (especially with charcoal). 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. Click onto the image for a larger view.
I would love to see Nutsfortreasure join in on the challenge, she has a great blog at Folsom Mill Studio. Did I tell you that she is an awesome photographer and artist? Her dedication to photography and art is clear by her collection of work – both are incredible.
Thank you for checking in ~ hey did you notice that my time frame keeps creeping up, lol!
