EDM #1: Shoes
I have the house to myself tonight. I can watch whatever I want to watch, listen to whatever CD I want to listen to… and instead the TV is off, the stereo is off, and I’m stretched out on the sofa with the laptop, hitting the web guilt-free!
Last week I decided to try and get a bit of art into my journal. I’m not especially creative outside the computer, so thought I’d start with a bit of direction – a massive list of drawing challenges from EveryDay Matters. They’re all basic, everyday things, with the idea being that it’s not actually intimidating to start with a blank page and capture something.
Prompt number is to draw a shoe. One shoe on its own is a bit lost, so I drew two. Here’s the result of my first drawing attempt since I left school over a decade ago:
The photo is to prove to myself that my drawing does actually resemble something, at some moment in time. Unfortunately, the flash was needed to stop it being a blurry mess, so all the shadows disappeared. And Dawson decided to insert his furry backside into the top of the shot, which is sure to outshine anything I’ve done 🙂
