I’m off to a slow start due to a freakish snowstorm that hit New England before the leaves fell off the trees. No power for 6 days! But I’ve been following through my intention to draw every day, a long time goal of mine, along with the creative folks following the Creative Every Day November Challenge.
I’m committed to posting a drawing everyday, good or bad. So here goes days one through four:
Day one is a drawing from Leslie Kaminoff’s book on anatomy.
Day 2 is more from Kaminoff’s book, and another more free form drawing of the pose. I’ll add more information in the next post, but basically I’m working with one pose a month with the intention of making a painting, so November is all about Ustrasana, or Camel pose, and these are preparatory studies.
On day 3 I was at the library with my daughter (we still had no power), and she helped me out on the left hand side. Her additions bring life to this pose and I am reminded of the Egyptian goddess Nut against the starry sky. I have a cool picture of her somewhere I should post.
Hmmm… I have images from day 4 but I think I have to get permission to post them first, as they are from a yogi’s website. I’ll have to ask her. So trust me, I drew today. Not bad for a week with no power!
