Midday was the #bandofsketchers prompt for Thursday. We were at Rode Hall bluebell walk a couple of weeks ago. The overhead sun shining directly down onto the ground threw quite dark shadows. It wasn’t perfectly sunny though so the contrast wasn’t too strong. Felt pen drawing.
Drew over yesterday’s monster to create something else. A little parrot or budgie? If I don’t do anything else artistic I’m still doing doodles. Still using Artrage app to draw interesting images. It’s just an imaginary bird. Tomorrow is a new day, perhaps I can do something more than a sketch. X
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt green. I did two versions of this, one a drawing, the other filtered through photodirector. I was going to draw vegetation but then I saw a bright green patch of verdigris on a two pence piece. The colour was amazing compared with the old dull coppers.
I had just done a post about coppering up. Finding loose change to spend, which is why I happened to look in the tub of coins so I used them as my inspiration.
Variations, ‘flower power’
I started exploring the symmetry tool on one of my new drawing apps. I had just watched a programme about Saxon art and illumination illustrated in bibles and books, and also the style you sometimes see in stained glass windows. It’s interesting how different filters change the way they look. I feel like the face ended up looking like the Hollywood film star Bette Davis for some reason….
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was shelf/windowsill. This is part of my collection of glass paperweights. They are on an upstairs windowsill. It’s shady and when it does get sunny they don’t make the sill get hot luckily. (They have been known to cause fires). Another felt pen drawing.
#bandofsketchers prompt for Thursday was Wind. With the wind that’s been blowing lately if there are any dandelion heads they will all be bald by now! I tried to give the effect of wind by making the blue felt pen streaky across the background.
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was View. We have a Robin flitting round the garden. Rather than drawing a real landscape I tried to draw our bird table and vegetation. I sketched the Robin from a photo because it wouldn’t stay still long enough to photograph! Felt pen drawing.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was drink. I’m finally trying to catch up with the prompts. This is a digital finger painting of a drink can. I used the Artrage app to draw it. I’ve adjusted the colours with Instagram because it looked quite dull.
Flood fill, low opacity, changes an image I drew a couple of days ago in Artrage. The white patches were created using either the eraser tool or a spray tool (I can’t remember). Adding light to a drawing can make an object look more three dimensional. As if a chink of light has found it’s way in through a gap in a curtained window or a hole in a roof.
Who is she? Could she be from an ancient Celtic tribe, perhaps a Bronze or Iron age person. I might make designs for jewellery for her.
Sweet pepper abstract
I really like that the collage app I have gone for has shaped templates so you can create a design, maybe modify it, then fit each individual image to a shape in the template. That’s what I did here…. Abstract sweet pepper x
