I thought this Eleven drawing was done today but I got some wonderful feedback from Pattie, so I’m going to make some changes to it.
The Eggo logos weren’t as hard as I thought they were. Drawing Eleven’s portrait was 10 times harder. I used some guiding from Photoshop by comparing the drawing with the photo in overlay, to make sure that I got the logos close enough to be instantly recognizable.
Pattie pointed out that Eleven looks a bit larger than she should be and I agree. I was pulling directly from the photo and the back of her baggy shirt she is wearing has ballooned up a bit. This will be a great chance for me to practice departing from the photo in order to improve my message. I also have a couple other changes I want to make to the Eleven Drawing.

I limited my gesture time to 15 1 minute gestures today. I’m getting back to doing the warm-up daily also.
In this set of gestures I was also trying to practice different sizes of gestures. Not only does it fill the page well, but it also give good practice with being fluid with my lines in different sizes of figures.
Today’s Daily Composition
Pattie and I went on a long walk down in Fairhaven Washington on an Interurban trail. At one point in the trail, which was covered by forest, the trail goes super straight and you can see forever. I was able to capture the idea super quickly in my sketch book.
What went well?
Art done early! It’s great to be creative first thing in the morning.
What didn’t go so well?
I didn’t have a lot of energy to spend on art this morning due to some sleep challenges last night.
What did I learn and/or how can I do better?
Keep working the gestures with different sizes and continually use my cell phone to check my drawing for changes.
