Doodle in gold and silver pen. Originally a contoured drawing in three quarter position, I added chequered squares to fill in the spaces. That left the image surrounded by blank paper, so I added silver triangles. The gold ink had covered some of the original drawing so I added black pen shadows. I thought this was a fun idea.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was lateral thinking…. I don’t know or Eye know…. A pun and some thoughtful eyes. Love pattern and colour and this was all about being spectacularly ‘spectacular’! Felt pens and fine line black ink pen.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was lens. I like drawing magnifying glasses and trying to get a good feeling of reality from an imagined object. This is my idea of how a lens looks. Felt pen drawing and fine ink liner pen. I used some metallic pens to give it a bit of a sheen.
This drawing is another meditation. As I spiralled around drawing complex patterns I thought about aspects of mine and my siblings life. By thinking about her as I drew I could concentrate without getting too upset. I let myself think about how things could be different, and that she may have been spared. I don’t know if it was a comfort but I had been watching a programme about quantum entanglement and the possible multiverse. I am not an astrophysicist and I have no idea if this theory would have any effect on variations of people/places/times, but it gave me a little strange comfort.
Playing with colours and the image of an eye /sunset. Felt pen and black ink pen. I don’t quite know what I was doing with it, but it’s interesting. It started out as just an iris but I got a bit carried away.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was town. Well, as I haven’t been out much I decided to imagine a town scape. It’s on a river and is hilly, so the main buildings are on a high street backing on to the river and the smaller buildings and houses are on the sides of the tree lined hills. Fine line pen with felt pen drawing over the top.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was Motion. This is my motion drawing, I visited Etruria Industrial Museum at the weekend and saw the Princess steam engine running. This is based on a photo but not copied from it. I have tried to remember how it was set up, I’ve also tried to use lines to indicate blurred motion.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt is ‘straight’. The cat went straight up the tree! It was going to be a straight road but when I started drawing I changed my mind. Felt pens white pencil crayon and black ink fine line pen.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt is hot. dragon is back in my new sketchbook. This one is purple playing ‘hot’ jazz! Ink blotted into the sketchbook then outlined with black fine liner pen and white pencil crayon to add shading.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was wide. I could have drawn a wide mouth, a wide vista, a wide stretch of water. Instead I decided to draw a wide eye! It’s just a quick black and white ink sketch. Nothing much to explain other than that.
