EDM Challenge #117: Draw Something Round

Here is my something round for the Everyday Matters challenge of the week. It's one of my antique green pots that looks a little like a speckled bird's egg. It was harder to draw and paint than I expected. It has a round opening, a round bottom, a round body, and a round shadow.

My cold from last week is much better. I still have a bit of sinus trouble, but am getting back to normal. I didn't draw anything else all week and didn't even go to my exercise class. I just went to work and came home to sleep.

The Moody Blues are coming back to Portland this summer and we just got tickets for their July concert. I'm very excited about that! When we saw them in Las Vegas, we sat in the balcony - which is so far away.

Not much else is new here.....it's been cold and rainy all week.

I've been battling a cold myself this past week so I can sympathise with you, Mary. I think you did a wonderful job on this week's challenge and the colours are lovely. :)

This is WONDERFUL Emma. And I really like the slight irregularity of the top opening. If your circles were perfect, the charm might be missing.

Alison said...

Yes, I was going to say the same as Shirley - any more perfect rounds and the pot wouldn't look like it had ever been on a potter's wheel. You've done a great job.

This is really nice. I love the highlights and the speckledness. You have a good roundness too so it looks very accurate.

Hey! What a unique pot you drew, and you did a really great job. I love that speckled look. Glad your cold is on the mend! How I'd LOVE to see the Moodly Blues! One of the first laser shows I ran (when I ran laser shows at the planetarium) was the moody blues. Love their stuff! :)

Nice going on the round challenge! Drawing round is always difficult, and you did great here, love the color too.

That's quite a unusual finish on the pot and you captured it beautifully. The highlights are really well done

A beautiful work on a lovely pot. You're right it does remind one of a robin's egg.

Teri C said...

what a lovely pot and great painting you did of it!! It does have the coloring of a bird egg.
