I am going on with EDM drawing challenges and here is my coat (#23"Draw a piece of cloth").
I also post the bird and the landscape. I did them before the coat and sketches show how tension of office work loosens with every new attempt to draw.
Besides, in my drawing class I try oils for the first time. And, as soon as the painting is finished I post it here and write about my oil paints impressions, oil whites, bristle brushes, smell and color intensity and texture.
Meanwhile the orchid near the window decided that it was time to bloom. I still confused about how to manage flowers. When I watch them, feed them and care - they are trying to die. When I completely forget them and offer Spartan "cactus" way of life, they decide to bloom. Nobody can understand that flowers!
The bird was inspired by FANTASTIC "My Birds Blog" (link) of Abraham Lincoln (yes, they are relatives with the president), the name of the bird was Baltimore Oriole.
Landscape inspired by the photo saved to the computer desktop hundred years ago.
Feels so right to have time for drawing! It makes me happy.
