… thanks to The Photo Junkie for hosting One Word Sunday
…..days 42 and 43
Yesterday I left the house at 8:00 in the morning and didn’t get home till almost 8:00 in the evening. I spent the day cross country skiing but almost five hours of my day was spent on a bus getting to and from the ski centre. On the way home I pulled out my phone and my sketchbook and looked up some photos I had taken of flowers that I thought might make good subjects for sketching.
It was pretty dark in the bus so it was a good opportunity to work on my blind or semi-blind contour drawing skills.
Today I took those drawings and redrew them in a larger sketchbook, adding more detail and shading. With the rose I added colour with watercolours.
…..this week’s challenge is to interpret the word pure
What can be more ‘pure’ than nature after a rainfall, creatures at work, a sunset, the perfect rose and a sleeping baby?
….with a couple of warm weeks in November the roses have decided to hang in for a few more days
