I've tried to draw my daughter as she was watching TV but even then, she moved too much. So I picked up some photos and tried to draw them and I had to get the graphite pen and eraser after many strange results... She looks pretty much like that, in the end. The green and orange paint on her nose in the left image are not one of my usual messes, it was really there.
This is for the EDM challenge n°178, draw something red. I was in a party the other evening and there was this beautiful, red drumset with blue glittering lights all over the stage. The music was great and I kept thinking I wanted to draw the drumset. I didn't have my camera with me so I googled a photo.
I've read on the edm group that you can use waterproof pens.
That's good to know. Too bad I didn't think of it sooner... I was a bit digusted when I saw the black ink drooling on the page.
I also thought all this red and blue and American music came well for the fourth of July!
As for the paint, for the moment it makes me think of horse riding. When you're not a good rider, the horse does more or less what he wants and you try to keep on it and keep it from going too far and too fast. Using watercolors is very much like that for me! (except I'm not scared of them).
