Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was tired. Well that’s exactly how I feel, busy weekend. An art group day yesterday and put up an exhibition with them, then today a drive out to Audlem to sing with our choir, then back to help take the exhibition down. Hubby says I look miserable not tired!
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was English. I think I went full “merry England” here! It’s definitely not fine art, more of a doodle, with morris dancers (you could have ‘molly’ dancers)… and a hobby horse, and children in the background dancing round the maypole, it’s set in a village with thatched cottages. I guess the main place I can think of that does something like this is Abbots Bromley near Rugeley in Staffordshire. They have the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance. But that’s in September? Sadly I’ve never witnessed it!
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was reflection… Quick reflection sketch. From a photo at Rode Hall lake a couple of weeks ago. The wind was ruffling the water so the reflections are a bit subtle….felt pens again.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was slope. I drew a cat sloping off the page, with a sloped back walking down a slope. Three digital variations…
Midday was the #bandofsketchers prompt for Thursday. We were at Rode Hall bluebell walk a couple of weeks ago. The overhead sun shining directly down onto the ground threw quite dark shadows. It wasn’t perfectly sunny though so the contrast wasn’t too strong. Felt pen drawing.
Bit late with this prompt of flow. It was posted on Tuesday but I missed it. I drew two lines in curves by holding a blue and a green felt pen together to give me a meandering river shape with vertical banks, the used blue, green and turquoise colours to give an idea of flowing water.
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt flow.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was guess.. Guess what bird this is? A teet owl….? Just a silly digital cartoon drawing using Artrage and trying to use all the different tools on the app.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was drop. Drop or drops. Tried to imagine how water drops fall and splash… I know drops fall like a flat oval, not the pointed ones that kids draw, and water splashes back up like a crown…. I didn’t use a reference picture, just tried to remember…
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was circle. I drew Circles. I used to have a shower curtain showing bubbles, a bit like this… It drove me mad because I kept seeing bubble people like this on it! It was an example of Pareidolia.
I’ve just got round to drawing Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt beauty. This was a narcissus flower I think at Rode Hall on Sunday. I was thinking of drawing bluebells but my photos were a bit blurred.
