EDM # 1

EDM # 1 Draw a shoe

Just one challenge a week just isn't enough, so I decided to start from the very beginning as well! So here is my shoe. I realise I didn't chose the easiest shoe to draw, something with less shoe laces would have been a lot easier and quicker. But it turned out pretty good in the end, and I'm happy I stayed with it even though it was tricky. Good exercise!

On a different note, thank you so much for all of your kind comments! I am surprised and very touched, and it inspires me to keep going. I can't promise to keep up with all of your posts all the time, but I'll do my best.

Edit - put in a better photograph on jan 8, 2010.

EDM #248

A while back I stumbled over something called "Everyday matters". It's a group devoted to drawing and art and that get a challenge every week for something new to draw. For me it's perfect, I get inspiration and a push to work on drawing every week.

Last week was my first time and the theme was "draw a lock". I found a padlock that I use for the gym, and it has the keys fastened with a rubber band, which was also very good practice to draw.

Of course I couldn't do just one :)
(Shown in the order I drew them, the top one first, and the combination lock last)


My creative blog

My name is Johanna, I live in Stockholm, Sweden with my husband and two kids. I recently realised that I had forgotten a very important thing in my life - my own creativity. So I am in the process of starting to express myself artistically again. Mainly drawing, but also some water color.

This is where I will share some of my drawings and paintings, I would love it if you gave me some feedback (positive or negative).

I always had a notion that it was cheating to draw from photographs, that it was more real if you did drawings from real objects, but then I never really had the patience to really work on my drawings. Now I've tried photos, and I find it excellent for practise - I can take a break and then come back and the motive is the same!
