Done!

Two days of hard work to tie up all the loose ends of this semesters college work. I only hope it all makes sense. I tried fitting imges on a word document, they came out tiny on the PDF. I tried using PowerPoint, it played up, and the images are huge! Ah well, computers are not my speciality.

At least now I can think about life outside of college for a couple of weeks till the start of the next semester. I can try and catch up with life.

Turning some splodges into a butterfly.

A pile of….

A pile of…. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. My rings on my little finger. I didn’t really wear any rings except my wedding ring and my mums that I inherited from her. But gradually my hubby has bought me more. I don’t want or need any more, this is enough of a pile of metal!

Coloured pencil, metallic pencil and felt pens.

On

OK, a strange one of our living room light, we have textured paper on the ceiling (courtesy of the builder who did up the house). Bright felt pens and dark shadows. The light is on.

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was the word ON.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do for these prompts. I was thinking of drawing a bird on a twig, but it went dark before I got round to it.

Cactus

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was organic shapes. I had drew a pot with a tile pattern using cut outs from post it notes and shaded with graphite. Then I coloured in green post it notes with dark green felt pen and cut out shapes. I then cut out pink Christmas cactus flower shapes and added felt pen to those too.

Block of flats

What to do with bits if left over paper when you’ve taken out pages from your sketchbook? I cut out the page egdesby snipping where the paper has squares cuyt out for the ring binding. I took some orange post it notes then glued the offcuts on top so it looks like windows… Crumpled up some green post it notes for the grass and bushy bank the flats sit on. Then I used my ink roller (that is meant to blot out your address when you throw letters away) to roll over the background, leaving a vertical line for a lamppost. Finally I added an orange oblong of post it note for the street light. I added felt pen for trees and the lamppost and drew in the squares to add shadow to the windows…

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….

#30daysketchbookchallenge (monthly)

February starts with a continuation of the #30daysketchbookchallenge. Instead of a daily challenge we are being asked to do something on a monthly basis. I could have spent far more time on this. The whole month in fact. But I just decided to draw a simple daisy design. Perhaps the centre is reminiscent of a covid19 particle. You decide….
