My friend Judy and I have started a new weekly challenge. We gave it the name One & Twenty. The idea is to select an area/place, for example: the kitchen, back garden, view from the window, etc. then give ourselves one minute to select something to draw within that space and study it. Following this we have 20 minutes to depict our subject matter in any way we please. Obviously it’s wise to choose the method in advance.
I chose the fridge as my area, specifically a capsicum I found there. Not being terribly adventurous yet, I stuck with pencils.
Next I examined the top and the protruding stalk.
Next I decided to have a go at it once cut.
The perspective doesn’t look right to me but that’s it. Time was up.
I chose my fruit bowl. Knowing how slow I am at drawing I thought picking one item out of the bowl might be achievable. My goal was to attempt some better perspective than the previous week and have my piece of fruit at an angle.
This time I spent longer looking and less time drawing (not really the ethos of’ ‘one and twenty’) but I still used the same amount of time in total. I decided to only work on one drawing and rub out guidelines as I went.
