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.
#bandofsketchers prompt today is ‘spine’
I trained as a radiographer so I almost drew a spine from one of my old textbooks. But then I watched Star trek, and remembered the Borg Queen in one of the films, First Contact, so I sketched her.
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…
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… .
Space, hard to draw stars, so I drew Saturn instead. Then I filtered it through photodirector. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt.
Black fine line ink pen.
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 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.
