Day 29 – Sharing Sketchbooks

….day 29 of theĀ 30 Day Creativity Challenge

Thanks Rainee for inspiring me to create for 30 days.

Last Friday I spent the day with our granddaughter again. I brought her a sketchbook just like mine and her own blending stick. This, however, did not keep her from drawing in my book. I saw a picture on the wall of a simple vase with leaves pouring out of the top. I started drawing it. When Winnie saw what I was doing she added more leaves to my picture and started to colour in the vase. 41A34BFA-6E60-40D5-9E8D-2FF3FF131A1C_1_201_a

When she was done with that she turned to a fresh page in my book and drew her own vase with leaves. B99C367B-FF34-46B3-9D82-E539AE2E4162_1_201_a

Here she used her blending stick on the pencil and white charcoal details she added. She asked me to make a speech balloon with the saying ‘I need you’.

365 Days of Art – Day 29

….making up for my non-painting days

Carla Sonheim’s post the other day had us use the scraping method to make a random blob shape onto watercolour paper and then look for shapes or designs to bring out with marker. This was a lot of fun.

For some reason I saw birds and cats. I hate drawing cats, only because I don’t think I’m very good at it, so I did the two birds first. In the first blob I saw an eagle with a fish in his mouth and the second one was a random mythical bird with an angry look. Then I tackled the cat drawings. One is of a cat sleeping and the other is a cat from the back side.
