The Facebook group, The Art Apprentice, a beginning artist group is having a 14 day art challenge to celebrate their 1000th member. Since I am a moderator of the group, I need to make sure I participate! I am doing catch-up on my art pieces and sketches, but here are a few drawings I’ve completed. Some of the sketches I’ve done are very quick, but I am exercising my “right side of my brain” by completing daily art pieces. Feel free to follow along with your own sketches, or leisurely pick a few challenges to do At the moment we are on day 7.

My quick drawings:
Day 1: The Number 1000. I used Sakura Pigma Micron Pens and Derwent Inktense pencils. Micron Ink pens and Derwent Inktense pencils are waterproof. The Micron pens are archival for any of your fine art. Because the Pigma ink is waterproof, you can put watercolor pencils/paint over the ink without smearing the initial drawing. I used it on my little worm I created from the number 1000.
Day 2: Colorful balloons. I used Delish watercolor pencils and the Sakura Pigma Micron Pens to complete my watercolor color balloons. I preferred the piece before I put the spots on the balloons, but I am told the dots look like graffiti. I’ll let you decide…
Day 3: An eye. Completed my eye using Derwent Watercolor pencils and Arteza Fineliners Fine Point Pens. Love these pencils and pens. All I needed to do was use watercolor brush pens on the ink to spread the colors.
Day 4: Something Sweet: This was a really quick sketch of gummy bears. I used Arteza watercolor pencils to complete the gummy bears.
Thanks for letting me share. Hopefully I’ve given you inspiration to do your own challenges!
