EDM # 7

I decided to go back to EDM # 7 (I found out I had already done it earlier, but was no good at this particular challenge) which is to draw a jar or tin from your kitchen! OK, I am the worst at drawing jars and tins. The worst. If anyone wants to see my complete and utter failure at two attempts the past two days, let me know and I will bare my soul and show them to you! Hahaha.

I decided that there is nothing colorful or pretty to draw in my kitchen or pantry...so I went looking online and found this pretty owl cookie jar!

I got out a black paper and just drew him out with chalk pastels. It was a lot of fun. Pretty owl cookie jar, and fun pastels...a grand combination!
I want to thank Cindy, over at My Little Things N Stuff for inspiring me to give my EDM's a chance again. She decided to start where I kinda left off, so it will be fun. Keep an eye out for Messyfish also, with her EDM's as well.

I think your owl is great. Your other sketches are probably not as bad as you think they are. I have never figured out where you find those EDM challenges. ??

Congrats to you both for re-taking this challenge. I love that cookie jar. You and chalk pastels are doing great.

I'm late getting to this post. Love the owl. You can't go wrong with pastel on black. I thought you inspired me to do this.
