Hurrah for the beautiful and talented Stefanie who presented this week's drawing challenge, Daily Project.
|'Elephant Hawk Moth' - pencil in 5x7 moleskine|
I have needed to begin a portfolio for my eventual application to the natural science illustration certificate program I am interested in applying for this spring.
|'Arctiid Moth' - pencil in 5x7 moleskine|
For Stefanie's challenge, I checked a beautiful book of butterfly photographs out from our library and did a sketch of one each day during my evening drawing session.
|'Costa Rican Glasswing' - pencil in 5x7 moleskine|
Each night I was more comfortable drawing from the photographs, concentrating on the details of each creature...
|'Common Blue' - pencil in 5x7 moleskine|
...shape of wings, body proportion, wing veining, antennae.
|'Luna Moth' - pencil in 5x7 moleskine|
The work was so relaxing, and made a good start on my portfolio.
I can't wait to see what the other participating artists did with their week. To see for yourself, visit Stefanie's whimsical place.
