Today’s challenge was to draw something colourful. My eyes fell on an owl sculpture by a blacksmith who works at a Forge at Etruria, Stoke-on-Trent. She’s called Charis Jones and her company is called Sculpted Steel.
Behind the owl is a plate that my hubby painted at the Gladstone pottery museum in Longton.
I started by drawing the outlines in black ink. I then filled in the colours with permanent ink markers and a few coloured pencils.
The colours are not all accurate, but as the brief was colourful I added some to the books and cds in the background while trying not to overdo it.
I’ve included a reference photo to give you an idea of what I was working from.
