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 5 – my three drawings today concentrated on windows. Each piece was done in charcoal measuring 5×7. I imposed up to a one-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 Mark Winter at Chicane Pictures join in on the challenge, he has a great blog at Chicane Pictures. Mark is an award-winning New Zealand cartoonist, designer and film maker. He has a fascinating background, exceptional artistic talent and many of characters (human and otherwise) you may be very familiar with. I really enjoy his blog and I think you will too.
Thank you for checking in ~ yeah, I made it! I will also post a summary on Monday, the titles and a bit about each of the 15 drawings. Click onto the drawings for a larger view.
