Our art final for my Drawing 1 class at COD was to do a series of at least 5 drawings, related to a common theme, and then convert it to a GIF file.
I chose the theme of Nature. I used Faber Castell Pitt markers on Fabriano cold press 90# drawing paper. All of the plants that I chose to draw are special in some way, either as a remembrance for a special person or they are special to me. For example, the daffodils are in remembrance of my brother Rob, whose birthday was in March. And the forsythia branches are for Mom, she loved her forsythia in front of the living room bay windows in Clarion. Here is the GIF:
Out of this series of 8, my favorites were the sunflower and the pine bough. All that zentangling earlier this year sure paid off for these drawings. I don't know what grade I got yet; they'll be critiqued next Wednesday. I was quite happy with them!
