I tried to think of something golden to draw. I could have drawn a ring but decided on do a different object. This is based on a teapot I saw at the British Ceramic Biennial this year. I’ve emphasised the gold colour a bit. I’m not sure what type of ceramic it was made out of but I think the handle was metal. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. Golden.
Hidden in the store cupboard, spicy treasures sometimes lose their flavour if they are left too long..
Forgotten hidden treasures.
Todays #bandofsketchers prompt was spices. I used bits of post-it notes for the labels then used black ink fine liner, grey fine liner and a black calligraphy pen to do the shading. I didnt have my mobile phone camera with me so I scanned the image onto the computer- of course it was a PDF, so I had to mess about saving it as a .jpeg so the image would look OK. Funny how you have to learn different skills without realising it sometimes.
Not feeling on top of the world today so just did a sketch from memory. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was Top. I tried to remember what a toy top looks like. I did a sketch with a black ink fine line pen. This is from memory. I can see a bright top spinning in my mind. The top had some holes in so as it span it had a rising and then descending musical tone. Edited in Photodirector to give a slightly abstract effect.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was busy. I’m busy doing pattern designs for college and this is turning out quite ‘busy’ (complicated, convoluted, patterned) so I think it counts…felt pens then edited through Instagram to bring out the contrast.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was hidden, my cat likes this little igloo type cat bed. When he snuggles down in it he is almost hidden from view. It’s well insulated and nice and comfy. Felt pen drawing. It’s only a small drawing but I enjoyed doing it.
Not very exciting but today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was office. I don’t have an office so I drew a desk tidy that I have ordered to keep all my black ink pens together with other bits and pieces.
The desk tidy is actually dark brown and the background was white. The only interesting thing we’re slightly darker images of the desk tidy tubes that were reflecting in each other. I would have liked to have added some lighter tones but the white watercolour pencil I tried using did not show up well enough.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt is silence. I thought of drawing the universe (space is a vacuum and there is no sound in a vacuum) but this gentle idea came to mind. An old leaf floating in a puddle. Digital drawein photoshop.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was using your other hand to draw. As I have injured my right hand I was happy to try and draw with my left hand
This is one of our cats. Drawn left handed. I could manage the outlinesbut the shading is a bit rough and ready. I used a dark blue ink brush to go over the black shading. I have some nice metallic pens which are useful to create related colours
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was knitted. So difficult to draw left handed, but my right hand is still swollen and sore. I tried drawing a knitted pattern. The spiky things at the top are meant to be knitting needles. Not much more I can say except it was hard to draw a continuous line left handed and the writing is with my left hand too.
I’ve hurt my wrist and I’ve had to put a bandage on it. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was healing. I’m hoping this heals quickly. I have already got a doctors appointment tomorrow so I will ask if they can work out what I’ve done. So frustrating. This is a digital drawing using a tablet.
