Hi there, and welcome to week 4 of inktober.
link to what Inktober is here
I thought I’d be flagging at this point but I’m still finding this style of painting fascinating.
Starting the week with lotus. I had seen pictures but had no instructions in the books I was using and I really wanted to paint some. I found one or two youtube videos and after watching them a few times then set about painting them.
22 – Black and white lotus flower and leaves. (see above)
23 – I added some colour to this one on the flower. I’m really struggling with the leaves they’re huge.
24 – After reading in the books that there should be some sort of insect or bird to bring life to the painting I decided to practice painting bugs, butterflies, dragonflies etc
25 – A lotus flower leaves and a butterfly, using the insects I had been practising the day before.
26 – Another lotus. I’m still struggling with the leaves so I painted three this time, (I need the practice). I also think that dragonfly could have been a bit bigger,
27 – Kingfisher, I love the simplicity of this little guy.
28 – Fish, I think it’s a goldfish, I gave him some weeds and stones for a little background.
Not all of the paintings this week had proper instructions, they were pictures in the books I was using but they turned out pretty well in the end.
Almost there now, just a few days left then it’s all over for another year.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Till next time, have fun x
