Day 10 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
Drawing is the root that keeps painting alive.
Connie Sharp

A great watercolor drawing/sketch of a garden in Taos. From the deft management of mass and light, we know we're looking at hollyhocks, the centerpiece of this garden. Watercolor and graphite on paper, by Marj Leggitt. Watercolor has a fluidity that makes drawing a sensuous and satisfying exercise.

How About: Make your drawings today using watercolor or brush tip colored pens. You'll have the benefit of color in your drawing, as well as the power of well managed strokes.
