Art Blog Hop

Posted on

It’s Monday, blog hop time.  If you would like to join in the fun, hop on over to Jana Robins for the details.  Even if you don’t have a piece to share this week, you can still link to this hop and work on a piece for next week. Honestly, you can do your entry in just a few minutes since this is just suppose to act as an online art journal. There is no need to spend hours creating your entry unless the topic inspires you to create more.

Last week’s topic was to create a contour drawing.  The goal of a contour is to never pick up your pencil, and it’s a great way to create a loose, interesting drawing.  In a contour, you don’t have to worry about mistakes, which frees you to just draw without consequence.  I chose a funny picture of my seven year old in a mustache, because faces are always a challenge with a contour drawing.  Does it look like him?  No, but I still like the result, and had a blast with the exercise.

*NEXT WEEK’S TOPIC:  Create a drawing from a worm’s eye view.  Imagine and draw how different things would look if you were the size of a worm.  Have fun creating and have a great week!

  1. I love your drawing! It doesn’t quite look like Eli, but I can see him in there. It’s a REALLY good face for a contour drawing. I don’t think I could do one that good. Glad you had fun!

  2. I just signed up to be part of Art Blog Hop! Never tried anything like this before- it looks like so much fun! I love to draw too, and I don’t do it as much as I would like.
    I would like to be a follower of both this blogs and Jana’s ( and anyone I missed) but I don’t see where to do that on your blogs. I am following FB pages 🙂 Thanks for starting this; it’s just the thing I need right now!

    • Lisa, Thanks for joining up. It has been a lot of fun, and has been good practice for me. I can’t wait to see your work! Welcome to the hop!

    • Lisa, so glad you joined the hop! Having a specific topic has been good practice and helped me to get creative. Looking forward to seeing your work next week. 🙂
