I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My first ten mandalas for this challenge are posted on the 100 Mandala Challenge page. I am on day 13 and I am seven ahead. That will come in handy when I start my long drive to the south. Below are drawings 011 through 020.
I do not know how this week’s drawing were all in color. There are normally more black/white drawings than color. I guess I was in a colorful mood.
I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook“. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My definition of mandalas, not the official definition, is: a design, usually round, that is symmetrical. I enjoy drawing mandalas, so challenge accepted. Below are the first five.
As I work on the next 95 mandalas, I will post them on my 100 Mandalas Challenge page. Note: The feature image a mandala I did right before I accepted the challenge.
Sometimes you have to work through the bad to get to the good, the pretty, and the amazing. Believe it or not, you learn something with ugly drawings. Below are some of the good and bad drawings from August. Others drawing are on the Drawing page.
This is probably my first successful drawing using alcohol ink pens, well somewhat. Alcohol ink dries quickly but it bleeds very badly. One tip I read with using alcohol ink was to outline the area in matching color pencil.
This drawing is a mixture of Faber Castell Pitt Pens, Prismacolor Pencils, and Chameleon Pens.
Today I filled up my third sketchbook. It was a difficult decision which topic I would share today, but I decided this would be the first. There maybe other topics today.
First about the sketchbook cover. I read a article about how kids draw and as we grow older we want our drawings to become more realistic. Today, I decide to draw the stick figure of myself, like I have been drawing it since elementary school. The hair has gotten longer over the years. The house and tree definitely has more detail. Draw, draw anything. The good, the bad, the ugly, the pretty, and the amazing.
Here are some of the pages from Sketchbook – Volume 3.
During my travels, I left three of my drawing safe in South Louisiana. Here are the missing three.
The first two drawing was an experiment with fine point colored markers.
I’ve have continued with my daily tile drawings. They were done of different types of tiles with different media.
I am back with my art supplies for the next 10 days. I was able to clean up some of the pencil lines and add color to the daily tile drawings, which I created since May 15, 2018, when my road trip to the Southern United States started. Three drawings are missing from the list, since they are safe in south Louisiana.
Here is the link to all of the drawings: Drawing Page Some of the drawing a good and some were done quickly. Below are some of my favorite:
