My standard lamp, the shade was from the Waiting room gallery. It’s not accurate, I don’t have the right colours. But I like the landscape of potbank and houses on it. The leaves are from a Christmas present (yukka?) next to it. #bandofsketchers prompt ‘lamp’
#bandofsketchers prompt today is hands.
Insomnia struck and I wanted something to do so I drew round my left hand as I used to when I was a kid. Then I filled it in, wondered what it would look like with nail varnish. Finally added a pattern so it looks like it’s resting on something. X
Our #bandofsketchers prompt today was sweet treat in honour of artist Wayne Thiebaud who died recently and who created art based on this theme (he did some beautiful work). Mine is Sweet treats. A bit dodgy because of my shaking arm and I was drawing on the back of a page where ink had bled through. Cup cakes in paper cases with icing and cherries on top…
Today’s (Sundays) #bandofsketchers prompt was faded.
Faded jeans… I only have a limited pallette I’m working with. It gives me more of a challenge. I was also drawing in a darkened room as hubby was watching TV so it was hard to see the folds and crumples in them.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. What to draw for hope? I saw the sunset yesterday and hoped one day I would see a beautiful starling murmuration. But as I drew it I also thought of the Greek myth of Pandora and her accidentally releasing all the ills into the world until only one thing was left… Hope.
I wonder if the name Pandora is linked with the word Pandemic? As with many myths it seems like a woman always gets blamed for causing the trouble! By the way it took over an hour to add all the dots!
Have a great and safe 2022! X
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt is watching. I’ve been watching my hubby watching TV. The last few days have seen a lot of watched TV, we could have done some walking but we’ve mainly kept ourselves to ourselves, just a bit of contact with the outside world….. Black ink fine line pen and green metallic pen.
Sundays prompt is lipstick for #bandofsketchers.
Lipstick, I haven’t worn any for years! Still I can take a photo of my lips and draw them. I have dark salmon pink and gold felt pens and I do remember what a lipstick looks like… So this is my effort. And no I wouldn’t wear bright red x
My hubby’s feet, a small step, black fine liner and acrylic paint wash. Not very exciting for Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt. Trying to work out the details of the straps on his sandals was tricky.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was Shops. I don’t go to the shops very often unless it’s to get grocery shopping. I couldn’t think what to draw so I decided to sketch an imaginary shoe shop. It didn’t help that my black ink liner pen was running out so it’s a bit scratchy. I just used felt pens for colour, but they are starting to run out too.
A sudden flash of lightening (imagined) lit up the night sky. Sudden was Sundays prompt for our #bandofsketchers challenge. I couldn’t think of what to paint until I had a sudden ‘flash’ of inspiration! Acrylic black and blue paint and a bit of glitter glue to try and add a few sparks of light.
