Summer Inspiration: Drawing Quickly

July 31st, 2009 by jules

I’ve never been too proud of my skills…I usually use as a way to plot out paintings, but never as an end in itself.  But I do find that regardless of your skill level, is fun and time seems to stand still.  Maybe its self-indulgent and that’s why I always put it on the back burner…?

Anyway, my friend J.L. recently challenged me on the spot to draw a pic of us and scan it back to him in 15min.  My immediate reaction was “Can I have 20min?”  I needed to find some paper, grab a pencil and find a reference picture.  Plus I needed to plug in my scanner after wiping an inch of dust off it!  Suffice it to say, it was a lot of fun.  I do actually prefer to draw quickly. It was also a good way to get me to do something I love to do, which has been falling to the wayside recently with all the activities of summer.  With summer taking over, it was just what I needed, some much needed summer art .

So I challenge you…draw a pic of someone in 15min and send it to me…

Don’t think about it, just do it….go!

Here’s mine…I started with J.L., ran out of time so I settled on half faces and closed my eye, but there are no rules, so no worries!15 min challenge
