30 Days of Drawing: Catching Up

Well, I don't know what to call this "challenge" anymore. I wasn't intending to do 30 completed paintings/drawings in 30 days, but I was planning to draw and blog almost every day. Well its day 7 of the January challenge. The good news is have a total of 6 line drawings completed so I'm not that far behind. I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in my progress but I wasn't able to get anything done over the weekend due to home improvements - the roof was getting re-done and it was VERY loud, EVERYWHERE in the house. So I gave myself permission to not do any art and not feel guilty about it. Maybe it was a good thing because yesterday was a very productive day.

Here are the 6 line drawings:

I ran out of drawing boards so I stopped at 6 drawings.

This is based off a purse I altered during my younger punk rock days. 

Line drawing for BABS. Does this look familiar?
If you recognize this one you are a very loyal follower. I did the original version over two years ago in oil for my figure painting final in college. I don't remember the assignment objectives, but do I remember my professor Ben loved it. The model in the photo is my sister Lori who works in the service station at a car dealer. She is a powerful, intelligent, inspiring person so I thought it would be great to paint her as Rosie the Riveter. I want to spend more time on this than I did the first time and this time I'll be using color pencils.

Thanks for stopping by. Time to get back to the drawing board!
