30 Days of Drawing – 12.02.11


Today, I got up, ate breakfast, walked Ruby, then went straight out to my very cold studio. I was ready to draw, but wasn’t inspired to draw anything in my studio. So I grabbed my journal, and started drawing on the tinted gesso spread that I created from this tutorial.

I drew with a Sakura Identi-Pen then colored it in with Copic Sketch markers. I didn’t feel “fulfilled” with just doing that, so I drew a Virgin Mary on the right half of the spread. Then I kept going and turned it into a full-fledged journal spread. My pens and stamp pads weren’t cooperating. I think because my studio was still so cold. I was having to work in my coat and scarf. So I took a hair dryer to the Sakura Glaze pens, and that helped a lot! I used my Sakura Koi watercolor set to add some color to Mary. And I also used my Portfolio watersoluble oil pastels and crayons.

Tomorrow there is a life drawing session at the University that I’ll go to!
