Folds

I don't really think that the EDM Challenge Mistress really meant for us to do a drawing and then look for the challenge to fit - should work the other way around to meet the challenges - but that is what I did a few minutes ago for this drawing from last night's art class.

We walked into the studio to find a clothes rack in the middle of the room hung with all sorts of garments of a variety of fabric types and drapped around with scarves and things. One week we get Mark's daughter's toys and the next he raids his wife's wardrobe! After each us had done the double take, he said 'Just pick a small bit to concentrate on'.

Hence, the scarf - which was, in reality, a very soft white knitted fabric. After 2 hours of overworking the flatest drawing I have done in months and trying to make the darks darker and getting nowhere, I had really decided that I would not put this one up on my blog, but here it is. It does look a little better on the screen than on paper.

I HATE DRAWING FOLDS!

Your fabric looks great, this is a hard subject too! Wow, this week you really have your hand full with fabric and now a self portrait! Keep up the good work.

Let's hope the instructor stays out of her lingerie drawer. :-)

I knew right off that was a scarf, nary a thought at how hard folds would be.

I love it! Essence is more important than articulation most of the time. Beautiful.
