AEDM Day 5: Leaf Pile

"Leaf Pile," watercolor pencil, unfinished

I’ve been successfully making art every day so far for Art Every Day Month, although I haven’t been posting every day because I’ve only been happy with some of it. (And I feel intimidated by much of the work of the other participants, only a little of which I’ve looked at because I haven’t wanted to discourage myself.) I only got this far on this drawing tonight before I began to feel too tired to finish. It took me half the night just to figure out what I wanted to draw. I’m already beginning to feel like I’m running out of ideas, and it’s only day five! I have my weekly art class tomorrow, however, and I’m hoping to get some inspiration there. My kids are obviously my favorite art subjects, and I’m learning that I much prefer drawing human faces and figures to inanimate objects. When it works, it’s like capturing a glimpse of a soul.
