A Hot Mess
….and back to drawing flowers
I’ve just started another year long course with Carla Sonheim. Lesson one started on Friday.
The first lesson is to draw a series of made up characters that represent a fictional family. We were to use a variety of media and techniques but the most important part was to have fun. I don’t know why but I wasn’t having fun and at one point I really wasn’t happy and I added water to my painting. I made quite the mess but I decided to let it dry and make something out of it with more marks and layers. Like I said it’s a bit of a hot mess but I don’t want to give up so I created a smaller piece with fewer characters. I’ll try a larger family later.
I’ve also gone back to my floral drawings. Today I drew a peony.
Sketching from Prompts
…and another flower
Three years ago my daughter bought me a book of 500 art prompts. The first couple of weeks I was pretty good at sketching the prompts but for some reason I was hung up on the next prompt in the book and put it aside. For some reason I have a need to do the prompts in order and not skip any. I should have kept the book in plain sight but I put it back into my book shelf and forgot about it. Today I did the next two prompts and will keep the book next to my pens.

Day 5 – Close-up
…thanks to Becky B for hosting Square Perspective Challenge
Becky and I have chosen similar themes today; different perspectives of flowers but mine is a little simpler….. from a few feet back to a close-up of one bloom.
Day 1 – Square Perspectives
…thanks to Becky B for hosting this month’s daily Square Perspectives
My first entry for this month’s challenge is a photo of a dahlia taken from the side. It highlights the beauty of this flower even on back side.
