Now just where did the week go?

EDM Challenge # 154 - Draw a Lemon
graphite in small hand.book journal

I am really not sure what happened to the time this week. We had our daily homeschool lessons, we had snow and ice which resulted in sledding and a gunked up driveway and we had hot chocolate. I had graphic design proofs to send, emails to answer and files to create and deliver, bills to pay and groceries to get before the snow came. There were dance classes to drive to and library books to get for social studies work. And the usual laundry, meals to cook and house to clean. Pretty typical week really.

I did finally get around to this week's EDM challenge though. Draw a lemon. Lemons remind me of sunshiny warm days. It's 8 degrees outside right now. It's nice to be reminded that warm days will return in due time.

This is so nicely done, Ann! Wonderful use of shading!

Leslie said...

Very nice, Ann. I also especially like the garlic and onions below!

I'm liking your lemon, especially the way you included the end, and the texture of the peel. I have a lemon ready to draw, but it may be eaten before it is drawn.

Nicely done, beautiful detail then enough left spare for imagination. That label is a humorous touch!

Lovely lemon. Not a day goes by that I don't enjoy lemon in some way, whether in water or tea or some recipe. I home schooled my boys for a few years before circumstances changed and they went to school. I am grateful having had the opportunity. Now that they are in school, I thought I would have more time but it seems to be filled with so many other things. Each week I ask where the week went as well.

Wow, simply amazing!

It's great, Ann! You really captured the texture of the skin. And adding the fruit sticker is really cute.

Oh, so nice to find you. I just joined EDM, with a burning desire to attempt to draw.

I love the fact that your lemon was not in a ziploc bag, like all the others.

Where do you live? I live in Asheville and noticed we had the same temp yesterday.

Thank you everyone, you are all so kind! I really appreciate the encouraging comments!
