Draw a shape…

I’m doing a series of drawings over a week based on prompts. The problem is the prompts are included in short videos and for some reason my phone is playing the audio at 3 or 4 times normal speed!

Anyway today’s prompt was to choose one verb from a long list of them. Then draw a pattern over and over again to represent that verb. I chose ‘to support’. With the problem I’ve been having with my drawing hand, I decided to draw hands over and over again. In a ‘supporting’ bridge sort of position. Then I decided it needed a thing to support. I thought of all my friends and how they support me. I decided to add tears, but not to wipe the tears away with a hand, I thought that would be too twee.

Before it was jazz

I started the previous drawing like this. It was going to be a background for something else, so the pattern is spread across the whole surface. I might recreate it on a canvas in paint. Not decided yet. I have an exhibition coming up in November and I’m thinking of creating a series of abstracts based on some of these designs.

Yesterday’s prompt, post.

This is the drawing I did today for yesterdays band-of-sketchers prompt, post.

Was thinking of drawing a pile of paperwork and envelopes but decided to draw today’s post. I put it back into the letterbox so I could make it look more interesting. I’m glad I got a gold pen to draw the door furnishings.

Tomorrow is October and there will be more prompts to draw.
