Brainstorming

Today I had a workshop on brainstorming. Coming up with ideas based on the word heuristic (first we had to read the definition) turns out it’s to do with finding out about things, collaboration, experimentation, investigation. Do we thought if sherlock Holmes, detecting things, doing research, being nosy. Bugging things, bookworms, learning, library, eyes, investigating the universe….

The doodle? That was drawn last night while I was trying to come up with ideas for an editorial brief… Its not anything to do with today, just something abstract.

Zoom doodle

Sitting drawing during our Zoom choir practice. I know most of the words to the songs so I sing along to the tune while drawing.

Most of my doodles are of members of the choir, but today I concentrated on the top of the bookcase with an old pot containing a pencil and a brush and my glasses and a CD rack. There’s also a plant creeping in from the right hand side. Ink fine line pen with coloured felt pens….

Doodles

I think I was trying to do abstract faces with lines here. Somehow the doodles at the bottom of the picture seem to fit with the contours above. I don’t remember the canvas so I probably painted over it. Sometimes what you paint is not what you want and you have to scrap it. Sometimes you fool yourself into thinking somethings OK when it really isn’t. I like some things and they just won’t work…. I may try and alter this in a digital app? Don’t know. I think this image is about three or four years old….

Digital crocosmia

I like playing with images and these are two versions of a digital drawing using different options in photodirector.

This was my basic sketch in ArtRage oils which I drew over with Sketch app.

It might not be very good but it shows what you could do to make it more interesting….

I can’t do this on my phone

I’m confused, this is my confused face. I can’t find some of my settings although this seems to be the classic version of WordPress I am still irritated and lost. Bits of information and buttons are missing….

Sigh

Why mess it up? I’m getting too fed up with it! Not a good attitude for a happy new years eve.

Glass bottle doodle

First doodle
Finished doodle

I drew some flowers in an oval area in ArtRage oils. Then transfered it to my Sketch app and added the shape, a bit of shading and the background. Finally I transferred it to Photodirector to add some lighting effects. I tried to draw something that looks like a glass jar.
