February starts with a continuation of the #30daysketchbookchallenge. Instead of a daily challenge we are being asked to do something on a monthly basis. I could have spent far more time on this. The whole month in fact. But I just decided to draw a simple daisy design. Perhaps the centre is reminiscent of a covid19 particle. You decide….
My last drawing was based on the prompt sketchbook. I did a picture of a sketchbook standing upright with various pages showing. I added a colourful background and a thanks to Magenta Sky who organised the challenge.
Today’s #30daysketchbookchallenge is Dancer. I looked for an image on Google and saw this Yoga pose. It’s just drawn in soft pencil and crayons so it’s a bit indistinct. Then I played with it to increase the texture….
Then #30daysketchbookchallenge is ‘disposable’ today. I decided to draw newspapers and magazines which are better than plastic cups or disposable plastic wrappers. After all today’s newspaper is tomorrow’s chip paper….
Laboratory was the #30daysketchbookchallenge for today. I decided to draw some glass vessels full of coloured liquids. I suppose that’s the stereotypical image people have of the equipment in laboratories, but they come in all sorts of types, for physics, chemistry, biology, geology, archeology, with lasers, scanning electron microscopes, x-ray machines, burettes and pipettes….. So much to find out about the world around us…
After the #30daysketchbookchallenge yesterday and #MendNotTrend last week I decided to draw a few abstract patterns based on the prompts. They are all based on circles, two in colour and one black and white. They were all drawn in the Sketch app I use. I didn’t use any filters for these just lines and the flood fill option (plain and rainbow fills).
#30daysketchbookchallenge, Day 23 drawing. Sun and Moon in an eclipse. I couldn’t get the black dark enough and the colours bright enough so I used Instagram filters on it….
I’ve seen a couple of eclipses in the UK. They were only partial eclipses but by looking in a bowl of water, and also the dark reflective paint on my car I managed to see something. Also the phenomenon of curved moon shapes of light caused by light from the partially eclipsed sun shining through vegitation.
NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN DIRECTLY EVEN IN AN ECLIPSE. IF YOU ARE USING FILTER GLASSES MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT FAKE. IF YOU LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN YOU CAN BE BLINDED!
