As a street sketcher I feel more than a little lost in our modern COVID world. Our plein air group had to cancel its season of outings and the portrait group has moved to Zoom (my French isn’t good enough for that), and cancelled their outdoor sessions as well. I try, very hard, to get excited about drawing at home but I guess I’m just not built for it. Mostly I’m dabbling with watercolor, gouache and even oils, trying to learn something about paint while largely not producing anything of significance.
The portrait group decided to do monthly prompts just to get us doing something and this week the prompt was “chair.” Most of the time, when one of my pointy devices gets near paper, I draw something that is in front of me. Somehow, this time, this dripped from my pen. Maybe it was because I was using my Kaweco Lilliput that has a high cute factor. This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be so maybe I should do more of it.
