Finally Catching Up: EDM Challenges 90-93

EDM Challenge #90: Draw Something with WingsI was in London during the "Wings Challenge" and saw mostly pigeons!  However, on a long walk past Fortnum and Mason, I saw this wonderful large glass peacock that was a major feature in one of their window displays.  My husband had just patiently had coffee while I sketched St. James Church and I decided not to push my luck and his patience.  So I took several photos and waited to sketch and paint my bird until I returned home from my travels.

EDM Challenge #91 - Draw an Apple:  I don't eat apples and I therefore had to find one to sketch and paint.  I wasn't working wet enough to get good blending of all of the colors, but I try to share all sketches, whether I like them or not.

EDM Challenge #92 - Draw a Paper Bag:  We didn't have one brown paper bag in our apt, so I begged a small one from my neighborhood grocery store, folded it, and carried it in my pocket the rest of the day.

EDM Challenge #93- Draw Eggs and an Egg Carton:  My husband immediately told me how wonky the egg on the left is - which of course I knew as soon as I drew it.  But I bore easily and couldn't bring myself to start over or repeat the sketch the next day.    We're trying to clean out the refrigerator before we gather our groceries for a big Thanksgiving dinner, so we won't have a fresh dozen eggs until next week.  So here is my egg carton and last 2 eggs.

Each one of these challenges answers is beautiful. That bird is great with all that detail. Love the apple and th bag. Great egg box and wonky is good. I understand all too well how that goes. :)

Oh that peacock is marvelous. The colors, in a nicely chosen analogous pallete is really impressive. As is the way he boldly - or should I say proudly - fills the page. Thank you for painting this. I'll remember what you painted as inspiration for my own stuff.

These are great! You did all the challenges! Now that's impressive to me.

These are WONDERFUL! I especially love the peacock. Spectacular work. And I also love how harmonious the colours are done. All the same values but different colours... Great job! Cheers! Mary Ellen

I'm in love with this "winged" creature. Beautiful colors!!

These are all so terrific! I just love your paintings and drawings. I'm envious at your being caught up!

Love the peacock. I think the subtle color on something we associate with being so bright and brash is very refreshing.

Great egg box - and chooks quite often lay wonky eggs though they don't get sold in egg boxes unless you buy from a farm store.
