Today’s prompt ‘layers’

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was ‘layers’. I didn’t have a clue. I’m sitti g here with my leg up with a pulled calf muscle. I could only think of hens laying eggs, so I imagined a couple of them in a barn. I did take a look at Google after I struggled with how the head looks. It isn’t bad….

Contour 4

Drawn this morning then mirrored and played with in photodirector. The idea is to draw a contour line around ink marks that have bled through from the previous page in my sketchbook. The initial drawing took a couple of hours, the duplication and mirrored images a few minutes. This is a combination of two lots of three images.

Tillys cat cafe

Run to support a cat charity. The cat cafe in Rhyl helps rehome abandoned and unwanted cats. We visited today and had the pleasure of meeting several Cats and Kittens that were so lovely. I’d got to drive home today so it helped relax me before we set out. They also do delicious pancakes and coffee so it was a win win really. X

Rhyl

Rhyl is in the North of Wales and is an old favourite of Midlanders in England and people from the North West who want a seaside holiday.

There are holiday flats, caravans, and hotels. Lots of work is being done on the coastal defences. The sea view includes a windfarm of about 200 wind turbines. They are far enough out to be not too visible. You can see them in my drawing but not so much on the photo…

Sea painting

Watercolour sketch, I think it was in Cornwall or Devon, one day we’d gone down to a harbour and I used to take watercolours and sketch pads with me on our visits. Sometimes I left them at our holiday let’s as a gift to say thank you for a lovely time.

The geology of Devon and Cornwall includes dark craggy rocks which is why I recognise the area.

Reflected idea

Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was based on the prompt ‘reflection’. I hadn’t got much time, so I based this on a mirrored photo of one of my cats, the little female one.

I took the liberty of changing the colour to hold with different patterns on each cats coat. The hearts are for how much I love my cats, I also feel it looks a bit like a playing card.
