EDM Challenge #104 and a couple of live sketches




I bought these tulips when i bought the exorbitant can of tomatoes...and was waiting for them to open ...I had been intending to add an orange to the drawing...have some lovely navel oranges BUT they are enormous so I opted to add a couple of the salt and pepper shakers that I had collected for this challenge to it...these are my great grandmothers I think...part of her Bavarian wedding china...it was sent to the states white and then was painted gold once it got here. I have what is left of her set...one day one of the kids will get it...


Today during circle time I surreptiously drew some of the kids when they werent wiggling...they were supposed to be listening to thier teacher...usually I wait in the back of the room because they try to talk to me instead of paying attention...but they were really into the I am Mr. Snowman song....mostly these look like the kids...except the one little boy who was wiggling like crazy ...the one in the middle toward the bottom...


And an annoyed student who reeks of anger landed in my line of site this afternoon after work....she actually sat still long enough for me to draw her today...but she took the hood off after I had drawn it:< Guess you cant have everything?!

Wow, you draw so much I can´t even keep up with your posts! So much detail, and stories told! I love your drawings, and the tulips especially, this time.

Great drawings! Gorgeous tulips -- the composition and rendering rock!
