As you can see, this drawing is coming along very slowly. This week was so busy for me that I just didn’t have many chances to work on it. It was very nice, though, to have a drawing I could pick up and work on whenever I did have a chance.
I worked on the inside of the pot at the top a little and I added texture to the spilled dirt. The texture gave the dirt a nice three dimensional look that I like very much!
I have this drawing set up on a magnetic drawing board. I have the photo I’m working from and the drawing stuck in place with magnets. I make these little lightweight drawing boards out of foam board, metal flashing, and duct tape. I like them because the magnets keep everything together. I can easily put the whole board away in a drawer and I can just as easily get it back out to work on. The magnets also make it easy to take the drawing off so I scan it. I’ve written down the instructions about how to make a magnetic drawing board here, if you’re interested.
