Draw a shape…

I’m doing a series of drawings over a week based on prompts. The problem is the prompts are included in short videos and for some reason my phone is playing the audio at 3 or 4 times normal speed!

Anyway today’s prompt was to choose one verb from a long list of them. Then draw a pattern over and over again to represent that verb. I chose ‘to support’. With the problem I’ve been having with my drawing hand, I decided to draw hands over and over again. In a ‘supporting’ bridge sort of position. Then I decided it needed a thing to support. I thought of all my friends and how they support me. I decided to add tears, but not to wipe the tears away with a hand, I thought that would be too twee.

Art lunch

Abstract strawberry and drawing of a strawberry. Done at an art lunch my friend organised at the warehouse at Etruria Industrial Museum. Just a chance to meet up with some artists I haven’t seen for months. It was good to see them in the flesh!

What to do next? Think about getting involved with community groups, I’m not good at networking so this is a good thing for me. It gets me to think about my artistic life.

Cat doodle

The cat was washing so I drew him. I decided to add contours instead of shading it in completely black. This follows on from my previous line drawing of bar code.. Similar principle. I like drawing convoluted lines. This was with a black fine line pen. The lines give it a different shape to how the fur would lie.

Learning new song

Learning a new song, 40 working horses about them and baker boys. It’s about when bakers delivered the bread by horse and cart. We were learning the song and I tried to draw a horse with the harness (although I don’t know exactly how it works), 40 X stands for the number in the song.

I do love drawing horses, when I was about ten I remember drawing a dappled grey horse and selling it to a friend for sixpence! (Old British money) X

Gate prompt

#bandofsketchers prompt for Sunday was gate or stile.

I did a coloured drawing of this on the computer but when I tried to save it the computer crashed! Anyway this is a black and white drawing of a broken gate to a field. It was imagined because I couldn’t find a thing that was nice on the computer.

I wonder if the digital drawing I did is saved somewhere on my old PC. Anyway this is the best I can do.

Print or not?

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was printed. I looked at print on newspapers, printed wallpaper, print on clothes, print on my computer screen. Fonts, colours, text sizes. But I decided to draw a fingerprint instead (not mine, imagined, based on a fingerprint but not something you could track down someone’s identity from). Apparently you can also identify people from their earprints!
