Hi there, how are you?
We’re still plodding along; we had one big walk down the road this week and kicked ourselves that we didn’t take our drawing stuff along. It was only a mile or so down a small lane to the river, it’s a dead end road with not too many houses so not many people or cars to avoid, crossing to the other side when we became close.
Next time if we’re still allowed out we’ll take a book and pencil case and sit on the riverbank with the cows.
I’ve been drawing in the garden again. I drew some quince flowers; the bush is a little scrappy but it has beautiful orange flowers, its only redeeming feature really since the fruit if we get any at all is the size of a ping pong ball and mostly filled with pips.
I used my fountain pen again. I’m finding it very restful listening to the birds and scratching away with my little pen.
had another go at the weeds/plant in the pot from last week. This time I drew it with a fine liner so when I painted over it with the watercolour the ink wouldn’t run into the colour.
They look a lot cleaner and fresher this time.
When I’m drawing plants like these and the quince I just pick out the bits I’m interested in,
This week saw in the 1st of April (can you believe it April!) I remembered pinchpunchpost, a twitter challenge I do if I remember. This month’s theme was walrus. I drew a very unappealing walrus, tried to cheer it up a bit in the computer, meh. I posted it anyway, why not.
With walrus’s on the brain I decided to make some sort of pattern. I drew a few walrus in illustrator and next thing I knew I had fish and a seagull too hehehe. Having lots of fun with the cuteness.
It’s not a colour scheme I would have chosen, I mean they are all colours I like but wouldn’t have consciously put them together myself, but I do like it. Illustrator colour changer for the win.
Thanks for taking precious time to stop by. Take care, till next time, have fun x
