….Carla Sonheim’s random pick words for the week are ‘pear’ and ‘cat’
Here is my drawing based on the those two words.
…..days 136 and 137 of 365 Days of Art
Yesterday I posted some portraits of older men that I found photos of on the internet. Two of my followers, Ivor and Derrick, made some nice comments about my work so I decided to try and draw them. I hope they won’t be offended at my attempts.
I found a photo on Ivor’s site Ivor.Plumber/Poet which I attempted to draw. The glasses were a bit tricky because there was a glare on them and I drew them slightly off kilter.
Derrick’s photo came from his profile picture. Sorry Jackie I left you out of the drawing. Check out the countryside where Derrick lives.
….thanks to Cee for hosting the Odd Ball Photo Challenge
I love this challenge. We all have photos that have odd objects or very common objects that are odd to photograph. Join the fun!
…..days 111 to 113
I made these in my sketch book and I’m wishing I had done them on watercolour paper or used one of my sketch books with heavier paper. I also discovered that the black marker that I used bled a little when I added the watercolour but it is what it is and it’s all a learning experience.
…..one real, one garden variety and one drawn
I came across the real bunny this week on one of my walks. It was one of those moments when I wished I had brought my good camera with the zoom lens. The second bunny is a ceramic garden figure and the third bunny is a drawing that my husband drew for our granddaughter.
Normally we say less is more but for this assignment from Carla Sonheim we were to take a painting that we weren’t crazy about and add more paint. The steps involved covering the whole piece with a gel medium, let it dry, and then apply colour randomly with paint markers. The whole idea was to create like a child and not think about it too much. After the piece was covered with marker the fun really began. I used more paint markers, black Sharpie and white gel pen to add more line detail for this piece. Here is the original piece followed by the new piece.
