Day #365 – Maia Carrying on the Torch

The challenge is over!

I’ve completed the most ambitious challenge I’ve ever set myself. I am pleased.

How much my drawing has improved I’m not really sure. Sometimes I feel not at all… other times I feel it has changed a little for the better. Either way, I’ve definitely drawn every day and with that I can’t argue.

The drawing is another of Maia, the most significant thing that happened to me in 2013. It seems fitting that in the source photograph she was chewing a pencil!

Thanks to anybody who followed my progress and I wish everybody success in their 2014 resolutions.

Happy New Year!

Day #360 – Irvin D. Yalom Drawing

I’ve just finished the terrific book Love’s Executioner so drawing its author Irvin D. Yalom was my first thought.

I think I caught the eyes okay but the rest of the drawing is a bit flat and boring.

Day #358 – Copy of a Matthias Grunewald Drawing

Haven’t copied a master sketch for a while. This is my attempt at replicating a beautiful Matthias Grunewald Drawing I found.

Day #357 – Drawing of Girl in Top Hat

At the in-laws over Christmas so won’t be able to process the photographs of my drawings or resize them properly for the blog so they might not look right. I’ll fix them all when I get home to look how they usually do.

Drawn from a catalog that was laying around. Quite happy with parts of the coat. Unhappy with other parts. Added darks to the face too early and therefore it looks worse than it could have if I’d not have committed too quickly with final strokes.

Day #354 – Brian Blessed Drawing

Kinda similar facial hair to yesterday’s drawing of Donald Sutherland. It’s Brian Blessed; the loudest man in Britain.
