Silk

I have only just done thursdays #bandofsketchers prompt to draw an item made of silk. My problem was I don’t own any, but I can imagine it.

This drawing was done on black paper using metallic ink pens, glitter glue, gelato drawing pigments, and some metallic paints you can pipe onto the paper surface. It’s meant to represent a square of silk, maybe a scarf?

Upright

Upright bottle oven somewhere near the canal in Burslem, from a photo I took on a walk with the closer to home group on Saturday. I didn’t have time to stop and read the sign about it as I was at the back of the group. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. Metallic silver pen, metallic colours, dried up black felt pens, black felt pen, charcoal stick.

Windowsill

Todays #bandofsketchers picture, watercolour sketch of my windowsill…

The cat has her own cat tree because the window sill is covered in glass, geodes, metal sculptural objects and more. I can’t show them all as the cat tree is in the way…. The cat loves sitting there as it’s right over the radiator. I think the diagonals sort of have a flattening, almost japanese woodblock effect? Anyway it was nice to do something in watercolours for a change. I just used a bit of metallic gold and silver marker pen to highlight some of the objects.
