A pile of….

A pile of…. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. My rings on my little finger. I didn’t really wear any rings except my wedding ring and my mums that I inherited from her. But gradually my hubby has bought me more. I don’t want or need any more, this is enough of a pile of metal!

Coloured pencil, metallic pencil and felt pens.

Upright

Upright bottle oven somewhere near the canal in Burslem, from a photo I took on a walk with the closer to home group on Saturday. I didn’t have time to stop and read the sign about it as I was at the back of the group. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. Metallic silver pen, metallic colours, dried up black felt pens, black felt pen, charcoal stick.

#bandofsketchers spiral

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt.. Spiral.
Spiral of wire weaving my friend Deborah did for one of my glass cabochons I made at Angela Ashtons fused glass workshop a few years ago.

The wire weave and chain is a deep bronze colour, I couldn’t really do it justice. There are coloured glass and metallic effect glass in the cabochon.

I’m happy with the drawing, it’s not perfect but it does represent it.

On

OK, a strange one of our living room light, we have textured paper on the ceiling (courtesy of the builder who did up the house). Bright felt pens and dark shadows. The light is on.

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was the word ON.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do for these prompts. I was thinking of drawing a bird on a twig, but it went dark before I got round to it.

Positive and negative

Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt.
Finally did a positive/negative self portrait after trying to think what I could do. I used the edge of a page cut off and added to the centre of this to make an interesting division.
Sometimes the challenges are really hard to do. I was going to draw a battery! Not exactly interesting. The negative side of the photo really lacked detail even when I tried changing the exposure.

Cactus

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was organic shapes. I had drew a pot with a tile pattern using cut outs from post it notes and shaded with graphite. Then I coloured in green post it notes with dark green felt pen and cut out shapes. I then cut out pink Christmas cactus flower shapes and added felt pen to those too.

Cafe/bar

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was cafe/bar. I haven’t been out to a cafe but I decided to use some mono printed black and white paper to create a table and mug. I added colours to define the objects and create a design on the mug. The circles on the table are meant to be splatters from paint can lids..
