EDM Challenge #51 - "Dancing With The Stars"

Lots of great suggestions received with thanks. One suggested drawing from the TV. I've not ever done that... there's a ballroom dancing show on NOW! Ok, time to try... here's the result.

Ok, so I didn't spend a lot of time on the 'quick sketch of the dancers'... but my Mum was visiting for her birthday and it was fun to draw.

4 May - Changed the title of this entry to include the EDM challenge I didn't realise I was doing at the time! Thanks to Shirley for the info!

Jan,
I love this drawing! It is such a snapshot of the time that you were spending with your Mum and adding color to her chair alone makes her the focal point of the time together on her birthday. There was an EDM challenge "draw your TV" so if you haven't already done it, you can check it off now!

What a super drawing! Your Mum looks so comfortable in that nice plump easy chair.

Fantastic!! I wonder which couple that was? only 3left now. I love the big comfy armchair!

Marilyn said...

This is quite good given you say you didn't spend any time on it.
It was a fun challenge.

What a nice way to spend time with your Mom on her Day! The drawing is super - how could you do it so fast? It would take me a lot longer! The touch of colour to the chair is wonderful - gives the drawing a bit of snap and a focal point. Lovely!

I really like the sketch of the dancers on TV. I think you captured the activity nicely and I love the only color being on the chair pattern. Well done!

I love the picture of your Mom -- and how you just painted in the design on the chair!

Alison said...

Wonderful - lovely use of colour and great shading on your mother and the chair, also the pose of the dancers is very convincing. Well done.
