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….
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.
Two versions of my #bandofsketchers drawing for the prompt knot. The bottom one was first, a collage using felt pens and off cuts of sketchbooks. The top one is with a collaged kite added. The string becomes the knotwork.
Lemon cake at Etruria Industrial Museum today. I gave the icing to my hubby.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was sweet so I drew my lunch. I was thinking of colouring it in but I left it as a black and white drawing.
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was based on the prompt ‘reflection’. I hadn’t got much time, so I based this on a mirrored photo of one of my cats, the little female one.
I took the liberty of changing the colour to hold with different patterns on each cats coat. The hearts are for how much I love my cats, I also feel it looks a bit like a playing card.
I made a digital drawing based on the #bandofsketchers prompt of ‘hole’. Used my finger and a symmetry tool to create the pattern, then varied it using photodirector app.
The darker, softer image was the first, the other two were edited in photodirector and the images were duplicated in the Layout app.
Thursdays #bandofsketchers prompt was slow so I decided to draw a speedy snail after watching wheelchair racing at the Paralympics. I used the pink and green ink that had bled trough from the other side of the page together with fine black ink pen to indicate a wind or breeze. I guess I could have drawn a couple of leaves being blown about in it or the snails eye stalks being blown back? Do they have four eye stalks… .
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was vegetable. I looked at broccolli, the fractal sort where it spirals into points. But I just could not draw it. So I decided to draw the normal stuff with a knife to cut it.
Abstract ‘window’ for Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt. I did a black and white drawing, then added some cut outs of paper trees. I tried drawing over them because I wasn’t very happy with it. Finally used photodirector to change the texture. The cut out trees were meant to represent net curtains.
I used the bits of paper from my paper cutouts to add a pattern. Chair and floor coverings…. I quite like the effect…, #bandofsketchers prompt from Thursday.
Keeping my mind occupied….
