Trying something new...

inspired by sue, the other day i joined the Everyday Matters yahoo group.
they have an extensive (and at times, bizarre!) range of challenges to draw...
this one is 'something that starts with the first letter of your name...
... and just to be clever, i drew the saucer too :)

Very nice, Claire,

I especially like the shading. Can I have a cuppa?

Lovely - just what I need right now actually :) To tell the EDM group, you'll need to create an account at yahoo.com first. Then search for the Everyday Matters group, and post a link on their message board to your blog post. People who have signed up to receive updates will then be able to find your drawings.

Nice work, welcome to EDM. I find the group to be a great encouragement.

Elza said...

Oh, excellent drawing. I am so glad Sue introduced you to EDM. Took time to browse your blog, but will need much more because there is so much to see and read. Lovely.

Welcome to EDM! I found the group two weeks ago, and it's so inspiring!! You'll going to enjoy it!
Love your sketch! A cup of tea or coffee or something hot is always welcome, specially with this weather!
Hugs!

Hi Claire - Welcome to EDM! You did a wonderful job with this cup and saucer (wish I lived closed enough to you to actually share a cuppa!). I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work. You are very inspiring - I love your spirit (and the L. Bacall picture and quote)! nancy

Welcome to EDM....great sketch for a non-dominant hand, I think I need to train mine, no way I could do that with my left-hand!

Nancy said...

YOU DREW AN AWESOME CUP AND SAUCER!!!! CONGRATS TO YOU!! I have a very difficult time doing elipses..so you have done them perfectly! You have an eye for sure...and a hand. Bravo!! A great cup!!!

Alex said...

Cathy Holtom said...

Well done, you managed well with your left hand.
Welcome to edm, hope to see more of your sketches!

Welcome to EDM! Amazing sketch using your non-dom hand! Sorry to hear you've endured such problems at an early age, but it is inspiring the way you are tackling this goal anyway!

Alex said...
