Enjoyed the virtual sketch out today with #uskstoke ! I drew our house off Google maps, it was too cold and wet to stand outside. Anyone who knows where I live knows my views out of the house are limited so I drew two other places I know from photos too! Oh how I wish I could get out more…. They are Gladstone pottery museum and Penkhull church. Both drawn as snowy scenes so at least they look a bit like the weather today….
I didn’t feel well so my hubby’s gone out to get a fish supper. Here’s my imagined version. Ignore the splodges that’s from a drawing on the previous page where permanent marker bled through….
The day 22 prompt for #30daysketchbookchallenge was hands. I thought I’d play with the idea… I used felt pen and got my old nail polishes out…and because of the prompt yesterday that was back to school, I remembered drawing round my hands….
One thing my very old phone had was a series of patterns thar you could draw with and fill in areas. As the phones improve and give you more options, you also can lose some of the raw ideas that helped you create something new.
I have lots of tools that I can use now, but I tend to stick to one or two of them that give me what I want. Maybe new phones might have some of these retro ideas?
Today’s #30daysketchbookchallenge prompt was back to school so I did this…
Can anyone remember having to do lines? I know I used to write with three pens, but I think I was just playing after seeing the idea in a comic like the Beano or Dandy….
#30daysketchbookchallenge, jewellery. Struggled to draw the tiny beads on this necklace. I was trying to make it look realistic, I’m not sure I did and the photo is a bit blurry.
Used pencils, felt pens and coloured pencils to produce this.
Redo with metallic paints and better photo…
Today’s prompt for day five of #MendNotTrend was calm, do I tried to draw a mandala to meditate to, (not a corona virus!)
Two variations. The top one reminds me of a patterned tile. Drawn in Sketch app. I feel a little bit calmer.
I miss my Mom, its been around ten years since she died, but I often wish I could just phone her up for advice. I did a painting of her in 2008 and I just did this sketch from it. I can see so many mistakes. I need to set an easle up. Trying to draw while holding the painting… Tired arms…
The best thing are her eyes, they are right…
#30daysketchbookchallenge. Day 19, standard lamp with pink sparkling lampshade. Plus view of vegitation out of the window. The prompt was lamp and lampshade.
Drawn in marker pens. I went for bright colours. A little A5 sketch.
The challenge is to copy a Bonnard painting. I’ve tried to copy this square., number three. I know I’ve made it too wide. My other two squares were painted in watercolour and felt pens, so this time I decided to use metallic coloured pencils. I’m afraid I gave up a bit on the vegiration. Trying to copy something from a photo on your phone while holding a sketchpad and drawing isn’t easy. I changed the colours because the pencils I was using were to pale..
