Inktober Challenge

Even though I haven't posted, I have been doing the Inktober challenge. Here are my next 3 days. I'm using various pens. The first one of the flowers are done in Staedler fine line pen.  The flowers are from an oil painting I did many years ago. It was done with a palette knife. 3 and 4 are from ceramic animals I have collected. They are done with Copic pens.

Update on My Eye

My eye is still trying to recover from the problem that happened when the doctor put on a contact "bandage". It has been a month. I can open my eyes now but can't see much. After the contact went on, I had a 20/300 eye sight. Today it was 20/500. But he did say the eye itself is healing and looks pretty good. I guess the "scabbing' is probably making me see less. I go back in a month and during that month, I use one eye drop twice a day. That's better than the 9 drops I have been doing for a month.

I am participating in the Facebook Inktober challenge.  It is to do a piece of artwork in ink every day in the month of October.  Here is Day 1.  A Walk With Doc.  Photo by Li Newton of her husband Dave and her dog Doc.  This is done with a Staedler Triplus Fineline pen in a cheap sketchbook.

Eye Trouble

I haven't been doing much art, in fact almost none. My eye took a turn for the worse and now I have 20/300 sight in the one eye. Not fun. For a week I couldn't even open it. Now it stays closed most of the time since it is almost useless to see with. I find it hard to stay in the lines. So tonight I decided to play with some art just to keep in practice. Not from any photo or real items. Just from my head. Graphite and Verithin colored pencils on Gray toned paper. Sorry for the bad photo. Taken with my phone with just a lamp for light.

Weekly Drawing Even on Wetcanvas

Seems I have been taking an unintentional break. I think I was tired from the 31 days of watercolor pieces. This piece was for the Weekly Drawing Event on Wetcanvas for 8-19. Graphite on Stonehenge Vellum Finish. 8x8 inches. Photo by Li Newton.
