That was what today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was. I have three large bookcases in our living room so I drew an interpretation of them. I couldn’t see all the titles let alone draw them all. I also added cat. It’s a bit scribbly and decided to leave the drawing as black and white although I am tempted to colour it.
Three years ago I was drawing pictures for Inktober. I did do drawings for the whole month. I must have visited my sister and drawn my impression of driving in the dark. That’s something I hate, people driving behind you with their headlights full on. (the two white dots on the drivers mirror) this was from my memory.
Since I’ve been doing an illustration course I have amassed a large collection of drawings and sketches. So many memories. Even during lockdown, I have recorded images. I’m not sure where to store them all!
Twisting the pattern I drew as a doodle seems to create a strange creature reflected in a mirrored surface. There could be other alien creatures lurking in there. I enjoyed doing this. I had some fun with it. I could make three more versions, choosing different corners to match up in the middle. I think this is my favourite.
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.
Drawn in a sketching app. I just used the tools and my finger to draw. There’s a built in wobble from my shaking arm. It’s been erased a few times to remove the most wobbly lines. I like the fact it’s quick and fresh. I like spontaneous line making. I enjoyed making it. X
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….
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was clothing. I decided to design a tee-shirt. Black and white and then coloured with watercolour pencils. I guess it could be printed.
Drawing of white on black digitally then mirrored it and added a mozaic over part of it. Just playing. Using different ideas and styles. I never keep to one thing…
After over a year I finally went out today with my local urban sketchers group to a place called Keele Hall, part of Keele University. Its near Newcastle-Under-Lyme in Staffordshire. The hall was originally the home of Ralph Sneyd and his son a couple of centuries ago. It was then taken over as Stoke-on-Trent University but then was taken over as Keele University, one of the first campus universities in the UK.
Too complicated! I should have been there at 11, but by the time I got there and started it must have been 11.45, then time flew by. The sun was so bright I decided to lurk in a shadow, but even then it was hard to see details.
Sky landscape artist of the year is on again so I quickly found Plymouth and Smeatons Tower that is featured in this weeks programme. The tower was a lighthouse built out in the sea. But it was rebuilt when an automatic one took over. This drawing took me ten minutes.
