ADAD #28: last one, title: "watching"

Me watching him, he watching something else,
some of you might recognise him...

ADAD #27: quick pencil sketch

 "don't overthink it, just enjoy it" is what I thought while drawing this quick sketch

ADAD #26: young female

I love drawing faces, like this one, but also the more complicated live models,
there is a lot to see: the shape of the eyes, the shadows, wrinkles, type of mouth and so on.

ADAD #18: folklore

Inspiration from a vintage book on folklore embroidery, 
these colour combinations and stripes were used in Arabic embroidery.
Made my own version of it.

ADAD #15: study of a man

As I wrote earlier on my blog, I am making sketches of this man 
in order to make a painting in the end. Each sketch turns out different, still learning...

ADAD #14: poppy flowers

This is a drawing I made for a small assignment for invitation cards. 
It took a bit longer than I thought, but that is part of the handmade process!

ADAD #10: more pink

I love the permanent markers with their thick points, 
I combined this scribble with some waterpaint.

Nice to focus on details and see how that works out!

ADAD#6: weird

A doodle with ballpoint turned into this drawing, the whole picture is quite weird, but it has given me some inspiration for patterns, surprising!

A Drawing A Day project, #1 and #2

Yes! This year I am doing this drawing-project again in the month of February. 
Okay, I am a bit late already, February came a bit too soon. I will try to make a drawing each day, to stimulate my own inspiration, knowledge and drawing-skills and I hope you like them too!
I thought about working with a theme but could not find a suitable one, 
I think i'll focus on using different techniques and materials just to see where it leads me to.
