Bibby's new dress
Black marker on paper

Barbara Muir © 2019What I love about Inktober is the challenge of trying to
draw something -- if not every day, as often as possible.
Today it's a portrait, and I enjoyed thinking about texture
in terms of line, very different from painting, although
many of my favourite painters' portraits begin with
a detailed line drawing on the canvas.
The portrait tonight is of a little girl who just got a new
dress. I could keep going with the portrait and fill in all
of the pattern and texture of the dress, but I felt like
her expression mattered the most, and it's all there.
What a treat to draw.
Have a loving your work day.
