I’m doing the Brooklyn Art Library’s 14 day portrait challenge at the moment, though I’m being a bit laid back about it and only doing it on the days that the suggested portrait interests me. I’m running a day behind because, being in the UK, I receive the challenges mid-evening and only have time to draw them late afternoon the following day when I’m done with work. So this is the challenge for day 6, Amelia Earharts
The suggestion was to draw this portrait with a non-traditional art supply so I used my Bic ballpoints. I drew this on the first page of an Emilio Braga Portuguese notebook – it’s a really beautiful notebook that has been sitting on my shelf for a while waiting to be used. I’ve just finished my Moleskine sketchbook so I’ll be using this for my ballpoint sketches for a while.
