Sketch of visit to manipedi; fast bamboo pen sketch of irrigator.
Good that girls did not realize I was sketching. I would be ashamed if they ask me to show the likeness..
To have a drawing idea at hand, I have started the new project, 6 weeks of drawings by Veronica Lawlor's "One Drawing A Day". This post is inspired the project.

My new art teacher explains the rules of composition, color and tone balance. This time I had to choose any objects in the studio and paint them in one session.
"You do not plan to enter any art college, so I do not teach you academic drawing and painting. You are in search of your personal style improvement and here we will dig together", she says. I like it.

Day Two. Go to the garden and draw flowers and butterflies. Use dip pen and give freedom to your hand.
He-he-he. This is December updated version, flower on windowsill. I used acrylic base as background, added some drops of varnish which adds gloss to the texture. Also I tried dip pen for the first time, great tool for above chaos. And would be very disciplining tool when used for calligraphy.
To revive my artful inclinations I start the new project, 6 weeks of drawings inspired by "One Drawing A Day" by Veronica Lawlor.

Day One. Make a still life of objects you like in your home and draw them freely.

During one month I did not draw/paint at all. It felt both, relaxing and depressing. Then I decided that I needed help and found new art teacher. Here is the first result of our collaboration. She insisted I had to use gouache (brrr..) and to finish painting in one 3hours session.
Artistic campaign is back to action.
I hope you were fine last month and look forward to see your victories.
