I’ve put 13.7.20, but it was actually 13.8.20, thirteenth of August. The prompt today was shadows, this is the view of the plants and buildings in the background from our side window. There may not be many more prompts because we have to come up with them ourselves, I wonder what we could come up with…..
I decided afterwards to add some dark watercolour to it, but then decided to add a few colours too. ￼
I also changed the date on it. Its still shaded. I think it looks quite nice.
I was playing with a similar face to the previous one, and wanted a change of style and mark making. More patterned, lines, dots and dashes. Trying to get a feeling of age. The grey areas were done by wetting a brush and running it over the papers surface. Spreading the black ink gently into the shadows.
Age seemed an appropriate title.
My very full mantlepiece and the pictures above it. I am a mad collector of cat ornaments and love collecting art. I think I drew this a few months ago before the one inch challenge. I might try and do a tiny version of this for that. As with black and white photos, I enjoy drawing in black ink.
What to draw on a cold wet day? Socks and sandals of course, to keep his feet cool….
Sporting Black socks with white toes and brown sandals, black trousers.
Part of the one inch drawing challenge I’m doing with Urban Sketchers Stoke-on-Trent. Sometimes it’s hard to feel inspired.
Says it all really, I went to bed, then got up five times, tried to sleep, now it’s catching up with me.
So many things were going on in my mind but I couldn’t shake them off.
Day 12 of the 1″ drawing challenge so I’m a good third of the way through it. Only 19 days to go.
