EDM 190 - Draw Your Palette

I read a great book a few years ago called The Creative License by Danny Gregory, it was really inspiring and made me want to draw all the time. I found out recently that he has a yahoo group called Everyday Matters, where weekly challenges are posted and people post their sketches, and also have a Flickr group. I don't normally draw in pen and ink or with color, so I thought this would be a good way for me to stretch myself and change my media sometimes. Here's my first post, a palette that I use to mix up acrylics and airbrush paint.

Welcome! I know you will love this group, it is full of inspiration and support! Your palette sketch is perfect, and your blog is something I must explore more!

This is such a personable palette and the spash of color livens it right up.

Just found your blog and have to say your figure work in previous posts is powerful and very good.

Welcome to EDM! Love your blog name. Your figure drawings are lovely. It so fun to see what others are doing in the sketching world. Can't wait to see more of your sketches.

Carol, thanks for posting your work. It is very inspiring!

I saw your intro on EDM!

Pencil, pen, ink, charcoal... I just think it's great that people pick up SOMETHING and be expressive and creative.

Thanks all for your comments and welcomes! I will be sure to check out all of your blogs, too. I'm really impressed with the quality of drawing in the EDM group, and I'm glad that everyone is so friendly.
