EDM #148 - Draw Something Soothing


I purchased this mug several years ago while vacationing in Lake Placid, New York. This is my favorite mug; I feel content and soothed when I drink from it. I also drew the matching sugar bowl; you can see it here. 2B pencil on 9" x 12" Strathmore 400 Series Sketch Pad Paper.

EDM stands for Every Day Matters, which is a drawing group started by Danny Gregory. Danny Gregory has two books, Every Day Matters and Creative License. I recommend both books highly. Many EDM members participate in a weekly drawing challenge. This week is the 148th challenge: Draw or paint something soothing.

Welcome to EDM.
I joined in juin, but lately I decided that WetCanvas is more what I need for the moment. If I get around to, I would like to do this week's drawing challenge.
Like your blog and art. Amazing what you do with pencil.

via EDM... fabulous mug. Could definitely be friendly whether full of coffee, cocoa, tea or hot-buttered-rum. Glad to know that software developers are using "both sides" of their brains!

I'm glad you joined EDM! Love the subtlety of your pencil work and your shading. I already looked at your IF entry a couple of days ago, but did not have time to comment.
