EDM Challenge #101: Draw A Bar of Soap

Here's my first Everyday Matters Challenge, #101 Draw a Bar of Soap:


This bar of soap has been in my shower for quite awhile. It's peeling and cracking, but still smells nice! This is my first Everyday Matters Challenge and my first work with pen, ink, and watercolor. In previous art classes I did some pieces in pencil, charcoal, and pastels.

I recently discovered the Everyday Matters art group through Danny Gregory's blog: http://www.dannygregory.com/ Each week a new challenge is posted and people from around the world share their art. The list includes things like draw a shoe, draw your toothbrush, draw a brown paper bag.... Here's the whole list: http://www.flickr.com/groups/59586185@N00/discuss/108608/

Great Fun!
