Seahorse

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was idyllic. Today I was sitting feeling sorry for myself, then my hubby asked me to draw a seahorse like I had drawn on the beach last week. So today’s drawing is a Seahorse from my imagination, it would be idyllic to see a mythological beast like this. Used an old black felt pen because it gave nice soft lines…

Speedy snail 🐌

Thursdays #bandofsketchers prompt was slow so I decided to draw a speedy snail after watching wheelchair racing at the Paralympics. I used the pink and green ink that had bled trough from the other side of the page together with fine black ink pen to indicate a wind or breeze. I guess I could have drawn a couple of leaves being blown about in it or the snails eye stalks being blown back? Do they have four eye stalks… .

Drawing waves

Imagined waves. I still haven’t been anywhere near the beach, but I’m imagining a sea whipped up by a storm. Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was waves. I’ve been to the seaside during storms, but not big ones. I think this could have done with more foam, but it’s hard to draw with a 6b pencil and black ink pen.

Quick figures

Quick sketches of figures while I sat on a roundabout in the park yesterday. I added a little dog, sitting next to one of them. And an older female figure stooped over. Our project this week at college was to do various things, including drawing a person walking. I must do a better job, but these were a couple of minutes each, max.

They could be neat and tidy, but you can’t nail people down to make them still when you try and draw them.
