ADAD #28: last one.. or two... or three

Lately, I have been experimenting with drawing patterns for fabric, 
some things work, some things don't.
To me, the smallest drawings made in between often make the funniest patterns.
Here is a more abstract pattern made of watercolour and pen:

Pattern by ZIZOlabel
 And here is a drawing I made to test my soft pastel crayons. This is a very strong earthy colour,
I think I like it.

And because this is the last drawing since February is coming to an end,
my hand drew this dog to say bye!

In March I will be giving drawing lessons to 10-12 year-olds,
and drawing fun animals is the first lesson, haha, I hope we have lots of fun.

Tomorrow I am going to draw a model, together with some fellow artists in my village.
So the drawing will continue!
On my blog I will be back with other posts.

ADAD #23: portrait in progress

This is not a drawing, it is a work in progress...
Currently I am working on this painting in my studio,
after the first sketch, this is the second round in which I changed
his face a lot of times.
I am also struggling with the jersey, it is quite a challenge...

ADAD #18: last portrait

I like clean lines, and I like the element of clothing in a portrait, 
for instance large scarves, or a long jacket etc.
This is the beginning of the drawing, I have finished it with colour and more details.

And I must say: I like to go back to painting portraits, more large-scale, with more texture.
But it is so cold in my studio, I will have to wait for better times...

ADAD #16: self-portrait

I really like all the self-portraits Vincent van Gogh made,
but to make one of myself...
Oh well, drawing is all about trying new things:

Paintings in the background :), but my eyes are not so green though.

ADAD #11: a rainbow sheep

Sheep are funny, with their woolly fur!
He does not seem happy though, with these colours.

ADAD #10: stylish lady

If you put your colourpencil a bit sideways and put pressure on it, you get these nice lines.
And just let your hand flow into a drawing, and add some details.

A drawing a day... in February #1

Starting one day too late, I am back into my yearly project 
of one drawing a day in the month of February.
Looking back on the past drawing projects,
I can see it has been inspiring to try different techniques 
and to discover your favourite style of drawing.
So here is the first one, a model sketch:
