I have two new challenges today. The first is drawing printed text on Eggo waffle boxes and the other is daily composition drawings from memory.
First I worked on a couple modeled drawings in ink than I moved to the second session of my Eleven Drawing.
Instead of just drawing what I see in the photo I focused on drawing with motive today.
The still life I did yesterday didn’t have the impact that I wanted to achieve. I wanted something to entice people to the demo.
I switched to graphite for this drawing and took my time on it. I wanted to do the best I could.
Today I spent more time studying other artists rather than drawing. Most of my time was spent with Robert Henri and Thomas Eakins.
I was up late and very sick the night before, now I’m traveling home early in the morning.
I had a lot of fun drawing this tree and starting super detailed.
The inevitable happened. I missed a day. But it was a wonderful learning experience that I can prevent a repeat of.

Our last day in Indianapolis we loiter in the lobby till it’s time to travel to the airport.
This is the last day of the conference and I’m sitting at the ZooFit table drawing the high priced Mazuri booth featuring exotic animals.
Once again in the lobby, I’m looking at a plethora of stark architecture and modern furniture and finally settling on an area of high contrast.
I hesitated when starting this drawing of hanging lights as the complexity of the subject seemed beyond my ability, but I did it anyway.
I’m in the lobby again, drawing a woman behind the front desk and the massive space surrounding her.
I sit next to my 12th floor window as the light fades drawing the street scattered with people possessing lesser fortune than mine own.
A drawing of a lamp in the lobby of the Hyatt Hotel.
We have traveled to Indianapolis for an AAZK conference and ZooFit promotion so the next few days is me drawing in the hotel room.
We have moved most of our stuff to our new apartment yesterday now we are moving our most precious kitties after I do my sketch.
All my art supplies are packed up and the apartment is almost empty so I’m sitting on the floor drawing a clean kitchen stove.

I’m using a variety of ink pens and markers from a Sharpie to a fountain pen.
Ink is fun because you have to focus on getting everything right the first time.
I decided to try out using a marker on these sheets of newsprint.
We stopped at a park so Pattie could do a workout and I did a sketch of some trees.
A row of stools at the kitchen counter and a standing fan.
I think I’m running out of subject matter in this apartment but the drawing is great practice.
I’m looking out our window down on a very environmental restaurant we ate at a couple times.
Luckily we have a portable air conditioning unit in our apartment, it keeps the heat and smoke out.
This is the stack of pills that I pull from daily.
I think I may be fascinated by clutter.
The stove and appliances in our kitchen are particularly interesting and hard to draw.
I’m laying in bed drawing the closet of our apartment.
Again I return to the clutter on our kitchen counter.
I’m looking out of our 12 story window drawing the Seattle landscape.
