Another post-it note and monoprint collage, drawn over with fine liner ink pen. The subject I found was mythology. The unicorn/ zebra/pegasus is adding all the elements I like together, the merman is holding a cornucopia from which fish are leaping. A bit of fun.
Just a doodle using Sketcher, a new app I’m trying out. The app is quite easy to use, with lots of different settings which I am just trying to work my way around. I don’t know how to get it off the diamond pattern so I decided to use it as a texture on this.
Horses, ponies, zebras too,
I like them all, yes I do.
Galloping, cantering, jumping high,
Flying hooves, hit the sky.
Running, flying, beautiful beast
Marvellous, wonderful, not the least
Beautiful figure, elegant grace
Examples of the eqine race.
The weather here is very wet and windy so I’m concentrating on doing some painting. I decided to paint a zebra yesterday. I sketched it out last night but didn’t start on it properly till today. I’ve extended the muzzle and made its mane black and white. It seems to be shaded with brown dust. Possibly it has been having a dust bath. I hope to finish it and my owl painting today. It’s also taking my mind off a toothache I have after eating a cashew nut.
You fly over
Huge wings beating the air
Hooves hook round
Black and white waves
Shimmer in the sun.
Glossy coat and wings.
Look down on the world
Prance and dance
Across the sky
Strike sparks and shards
