a bunch o' challenges

I loved Nina Johansson's "week drawings", so I decided to give it a try. I started at the end of last week using EDM challenges to fill the page.

Check out how old that mustard is—YIKES!

I love this! And, I really like the idea of putting several challenges on one page ... I might have to give it a go! nancy

WONDERFUL handling, Jennifer, and luscious color! I'm glad Nina inspired you, but you definitely made it your own...

Shirley said...

Wonderful collection - and I look at your challenge objects and it takes me back to my drawings from the same ones....

What a great idea! I love your loose work.

Very intriguing, as you lead the eye through the objects - I want to try a week long page myself - thanks for the inspiration!

Sandra said...

Neat idea to have many challenges on one page. Now, if I can capture some of your colors and technique, I'll be really happy.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and encouragement. This was fun a fun page to create. I may try it again.

Way to check off a whole bunch of EDM challenges in one swoop, Jennifer! You probably have all the challenges you need, but I added a sidebar of miscellaneous drawing and painting challenges on my blog.
