|Left Hand Drawing|
|Right Hand Buddha|
Inked pencil drawing with watercolor
In Jane LaFazio's Sketching and Watercolor, Journal Style workshop we were asked to
draw a continuous line drawing with our left hand. I decide to draw one of my Buddha statues.
The drawing only took a little while, but I kind of liked it. I was surprised, however, when
people in the class remarked that it was "so full of emotion". Hmmm I can see it but guess
the directness of my left hand drawing came through.
In week 6 we were asked to draw a man-made object. I found that I just didn't want to
draw kitchen appliances or the like. So I did a right hand drawing of my statue. It was easy
to draw the upper half of this statue but I kept on erasing and redrawing the bottom half. I
still wonder about some of the details. The color, which began when I picked up the wrong
colored Sharpie Pen actually turned out to be a happy accident. I have always loved images
of the "Medicine Buddha", the Buddha depicted as being blue.
So which Buddha do you prefer? I am always looking for comments about my posts.
