Ewan McGregor

I went through a rut of no motivation. I wanted to draw but nothing was striking me as a desirable subject. I told my husband that I needed some inspiration. He sent me to the Phoenix Art Museum, by myself, to look at great art and get motivated. It was a great idea. I can always get something from other art, even if it’s not in a medium I use. I came away from that museum trip the thought that I just needed to start something. So the next day, I started Ewan McGregor.

It still takes me a while to draw with the new method I’ve learned, but I love the results.

 
It’s 8×10 inches. On Canford toned drawing paper. 2H-8B graphite pencil and white chalk pencil. About 12 hours.

Do you love Ewan McGregor? My favorite of his movies is Moulin Rouge. I also love Down With Love and Big Fish. If you haven’t seen it, I also recommend his motorcycle journey documentaries, Long Way Round and Long Way Down (my favorite of the two).

Keep Drawing!
