Drawing Day 2008

In honor of Drawing Day, the kids and I sat down and did some drawings together. I had visions of heading out and drawing from nature, but the over 90 degree temperature with a heat index near 100 quickly put an end to that plan. So instead, our inspiration came from items in our kitchen. Here is each of their drawings followed by my sketch of the same item.

Child #2 did the bananas and the napkin basket in Crayola marker on regular copy paper.

My bananas are also done in Crayola marker on copy paper. (It was so much fun working with those bold colors!)

My napkin basket was done in my watercolor Moleskine using an Eberhard Faber Ebony pencil.

(Please see the next post down -- Drawing Day 2008 (continued) -- for the drawing from Child #1 and the rest of my images. Thank you!)

Wow, what great artwork. I am impressed! Great Job Child #2. You must get your talent from Mommy and Pop Pop.

Someone who does know you. (Grammy)

Thanks Billie! I was surprised by how much I liked the bananas. They are so different from my normal style.

Grammy, child #2 says thank you! She was thrilled to get your comment. :)

Child #2. You did such a good job on your bananas and napkin holder. I love the nice bright colors. Keep up the good work. Try to do as much sketching as you can this summer during your holidays. And mom, love the herbs and basket.

Jeanne, thank you for the nice comment. I'm going to Mommy's art class so I can do more sketching. I like drawing nature a lot.
