This week Lisa from “Zeebra Designs & Destinations” has discussed concentration in relation to art. I agree, to try to reproduce, as a pencil sketch, or any other medium, what you are looking at needs intense concentration. I have realised this over the past few weeks that I have joined Lisa’s “Time out for art” group.

This week winter arrived. The skies are grey, the wind is chilly and at last the long-awaited rain arrived to soak the gardens and give the plants the reviving moisture they need.
Not weather for drawing outside, so looking around I decided to stay indoors, in comfort, to sketch the lounge chairs.
Not easy, they had many different angles and the perspective was a challenge. It required great concentration and almost 2 hours to complete. That is Tessa curled up on the chair. I must admit she looks like a hedgehog the way I have drawn her. I took a photo after I finished the drawing to compare the results and have a record for future reference.
I have put them in side by side to be able to compare the art with the photo taken after I had finished the drawing.
