From a Doodle to Flowers, a Bird and a Bee

….day 124 for 365 Days of Art

Using watercolour I added colour to a doodle that I had made last week. This time I looked for shapes and found a bird and a whimsical bee. With other shapes I created some abstract flowers. Here is the doodle before paint.IMG_3147

Here is the finished piece with watercolour and some extra Micron pen detail.fullsizeoutput_701f

From That to This

…..day 123 of 365 Days of Art

I took another doodle and added colour but this time I used watercolour and I made random circles and ovals all over the page. When it dried I added line detail with my Micron pen and I created a page of abstract flowers.

I made the doodle last week and I thought I had taken a photo of it before I started painting it at the cottage but apparently I hadn’t. I think you get the idea.

Second Doodle Completed

….day 122 of 365 Days of Art

I was away for four days at the cottage. Even though much of my time was spent cleaning the cottage and clearing the leaves around the cottage I did manage to do some art. Here is my second doodle art piece complete with line detail.

Flags, Tattoo, Family Crest

….day 95 of the 365 Days of Art

I’ve started my day by drawing in my new art journal 500 Drawing Prompts. Today the prompts are flags, tattoos and family crest. I drew the flag from memory, the crest I made up and the tattoo I referenced from Google. Unfortunately you can see how the pen from the previous drawing has bled through. I’ve switched to Micron pens and that seems to help.IMG_1876

365 Days of Art – Mug Shot

…..Day 31

Carla Sonheim posted a video about Chris Crites who paints mug shots on paper bags. I googled ‘mug shot images’ and found hundreds of photo of actual mug shots. Here is the one I chose to draw. Now I’m debating whether I should add some colour to it. What do you think?

365 Days of Art – Random Pig

….day 30

Yesterday’s prompt from Carla Sonheim was ‘random pig’. I’ve wanted to paint a pig for awhile now so I searched the internet for pig images. I made two drawings a Micron pen. In the first one the eyes were too far apart and the face wasn’t long enough. I’m much happier with my second attempt. I’m that much closer to using paint for my next pig project.
