Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was fruit. I drew a strawberry. Felt pens on cartridge paper. This is a photograph from a free clip art site. I liked using pink and red together. It makes an interesting combination.
The sky is gloomy, but salmon pink was seeping underneath it this evening, like a strawberry blancmange layer in a trifle. Deep green and paynes grey sandwich the pink. We avoided the rain as the wind was blowing away from us. I love walking on this side of the hill, we live on the shady side!
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was Nature so drew a new poppy we’ve got in the garden. It’s a nice pinky grey
Just drawn with felt pens and avoiding using any black ink.
When I see your blushing pink I can see why Shakespeare was so effusive about you.
Pink and packed with petals, this rose shone out in the twilight. The dark green contrasting with the fresh colour of the flower.
I wish I had the skill to weave a story about you, perhaps your antecedents were worn by Cinderella at the ball, or the scent of you enchanted Snow White.
I think I heard roses came from Ancient Persia. Wherever they originated, they are lovely. I saw these outside the Portmeirion factory in Stoke, they brightened my evening.
Pink green and white
Found on our walk
Flowers on their stalk
Intermingled pink and green
And white, glowing, clean
Really bad poem?
Better get going!
Splash your colour everywhere
Brighten the world
Pink and red and yellow
Purple and orange too.
Spring is here
The world is green
Give the world joy.
What are they?
Given with love and devotion
Showing they care
Blushing with beauty
For love and lovers.
Bursting from branches
Pink and effervescent.
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.
A stitch in horse saves stampede?
Post-it pony? Contrasting the thread to the paper. Just playing with ideas about mark making. I used a black marker pen to outline the shape and then pierced the stitch holes rather than trying to force the needle and cotton through the paper and post it notes. Then I’ve used back stitch and a piece of cotton woven through them to make a thicker line. I also practiced chain stitch and French knots.
