FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS!


KELP BASKET MULTIPLE DIP PENS AND INDIA INK
The second assignment in the book One Drawing a Day by Victoria Lawlor was to draw with different dip pen nibs.  All these drawings are supposed to be from life, not photographs, so I looked around and thought this basket made from dried kelp, would be interesting.   After I completed the drawing, I decided to photograph the basket to see how I did.  I felt compelled to add the ink wash.  I guess I can't totally follow directions but I came close.  I so like the variety of line.  This idea has real potential for future work.

Not quite sure how I missed a post Myrna, but glad to see both of these last two. Your drawings are so lovely! I'm glad you included a photo because I couldn't figure out what I was looking at! What a unique piece!! Oh to draw so well!

I think your added washes 'explain' the drawing. That is a cool drawing and basket. Just got back from my sister's in Central Oregon. It was a busy trip.
