Seated figure. Mark making sketch drawn in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep because of the pain in my leg. I tried to draw a chain like pattern and to see what arrived on the page. I do think it looks interesting and I might add some rusty colours to give it a metallic feel. I think I will do a few more drawings using patterns to make them.
It’s interesting to draw with simple lines and yet still try to capture character. Things like the size of eyes, the shape of a chin, the direction to draw lines to indicate where and how hair is growing. Nose shape, mouth shape, thin lips, large eyebrows….
Can you tell the emotions that characters are feeling from a drawing? It’s hard to say… Can you tell if the people are male or female, or young or old? Can you show how big they are, what they weigh?
I think you can tell a lot from line drawings if you try.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was idyllic. Today I was sitting feeling sorry for myself, then my hubby asked me to draw a seahorse like I had drawn on the beach last week. So today’s drawing is a Seahorse from my imagination, it would be idyllic to see a mythological beast like this. Used an old black felt pen because it gave nice soft lines…
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was ‘layers’. I didn’t have a clue. I’m sitti g here with my leg up with a pulled calf muscle. I could only think of hens laying eggs, so I imagined a couple of them in a barn. I did take a look at Google after I struggled with how the head looks. It isn’t bad….
Drawn this morning then mirrored and played with in photodirector. The idea is to draw a contour line around ink marks that have bled through from the previous page in my sketchbook. The initial drawing took a couple of hours, the duplication and mirrored images a few minutes. This is a combination of two lots of three images.
Thursdays #bandofsketchers prompt was pair. Here are my new shoes I bought in Rhyl. I tried to draw in patches without an outline. I used felt pens to do the drawing and tried to make an interesting pattern on the carpet.
Run to support a cat charity. The cat cafe in Rhyl helps rehome abandoned and unwanted cats. We visited today and had the pleasure of meeting several Cats and Kittens that were so lovely. I’d got to drive home today so it helped relax me before we set out. They also do delicious pancakes and coffee so it was a win win really. X
