My drawing and painting life

Daily Dali’s

I’ve been doing the Dali drawings and doodling for a couple of days. These are meant as practice drawings and as a way to experiment with new things. As I am not a pencil person, I figured I’d try using only colored pencils for a while. The idea is to do the doodling when watching TV or something like that (keeping your mind otherwise engaged). I did some with Youtube music video’s on and at least one while someone else was watching TV in the same room. Maybe I should at least try once to do it while trying to follow the show/series that’s on myself. To see what effect it has.

For this drawing – done on Feb25 – I used a photograph of Dali at an earlier age. It was late, I was getting a bit hasty, had to reign myself in abit to finish it in an “OK” state.

Next day – Feb 26 – I decided to try a different pen and change the subject a little – to Dali and Gala. The pen is a (recently bought) fountain pen and I already had found out the ink is water soluble, so I tried to make it into a washed drawing. This was after I first started to just draw with added hatching on the darkest patches. I didn’t like the result very much, so why not push on? Trying out the new subject matter and the pen had me in the experimental mode anyway. This is interesting, I’m getting less and less attached to the drawings  – unless they turn out really nice, than I’m back with being attached  (like with the drawing of Dali with only one dark watercolor added.)

(That number #177 in handwriting was a mistake… it’s day 179 out of 365… yeah, now almost halfway!)

      Oh how nice to hear that you’re inspired. 🙂 You’re lucky with a museum like that. I hope to see his work some day too.
