Drawing 15 Minutes a Day

Fifteen Minutes a Day – day one and a half

Did more than 15 minutes yesterday (day one).  In fact I worked on this for more than an hour.  I was teaching a class last evening and we worked on a drawing of a small book.  Then we got out colored pencils and that made it a lot of fun, so I worked longer than […]


My endeavor to draw fifteen minutes a day has been a success. I will move on now. The goal was to get me to move forward. I was going weeks and sometimes months between drawing or painting. I thought I would have to draw fifteen minutes a day for a year, but perhaps not. I […]

Day 12 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

Einstein.  I’m so glad I drew him again.  I like this one much better.  As with the crab drawing, this one is done with the Prismacolor Premiere and Derwent Coloursoft pencils on Strathmore Artagan Coal Black paper.  I have only drawn one other dog in my entire life.  That was the Cocker Spaniel puppy (below) […]

Day 11 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

Well, here I go again.  I didn’t get much done in fifteen minutes.  I’m going to continue this project though.  I’ll show you the final outcome. Einstein was my Day One drawing, but this time I’m going to draw him for real.  I enjoyed working on the crab so much that I think Einstein is […]

Day 10 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

Today’s drawing is going to be in preparation for a bigger project.  I need to do some new artwork for a show later in the month.  Since I live in Maryland, land of blue crabs, boating, the Chesapeake Bay, horses, and great people, I’m going to do some local stuff – starting with the blue […]

Day 9 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

This drawing is done with Prismacolor colored pencils on black paper.

Day 8 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

I spent several hours at the St. Clements Island Museum today, doing some filming for the documentary and learning to knit. What a great combination. This little diorama has nothing to do with either the documentary or the knitting, but I liked it. I like that the man has his hand on his friend’s shoulder. […]

Day 7 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

I’m weary. Call it jet lag … or kayak lag.  Yesterday was such an amazing day.  Our day of filming for the documentary started out on the water.  When we arrived at the place where we would launch the rowboat, they took a small, one-person kayak out of the rowboat and put it in the […]

Day 6 – Drawing Fifteen Minutes a Day

Meet Buffy. I’m filming a documentary about Sustainable Farming and have gotten to know this young lady quite well.  The first day we met, she looked me over and hopefully gave me thumbs – er, rather, claws up. The turkeys are in the middle of raising their poults (babies).  The mothers are excellent teachers – […]
