Hi, how are you? It’s October already, can you believe it?
The strawberry leaves are changing so I stood outside in the sunshine and did a quick sketch. I love the colours of the leaves in autumn.
There are loads of ladybirds in the garden this year and they’re all different colours. I’m used to seeing them in the summer but by now they have usually disappeared. I took a few photos so I could draw them as they are too small for me to draw from life, I have to blow them up a little on the computer.
I wanted to draw some flying ladybirds, I’m not a good enough photographer to capture them flying so a google image search will have to do.
It’s October and my lovely daughter decided she wants to do inktober. ( Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.)
She also decided she wants me to do it with her, Eeep. I’ve made a start on the first two. I will post the pictures every day on instagram. (providing I can keep it up) I’ll probably collect the whole week together in one post and save everybody’s in-boxes. If anybody’s interested feel free to check them out on my instagram page here,
The lines are a bit wobbly as I’m using a pentel brush pen. It’s a pen my daughter gave my a while ago and till now I haven’t really used it. Hopefully after 30 days I’ll know what I’m doing.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy inking, till next time, have fun x
